By Said Amir Arjomand

Few thought of the increase of theocracy in a modernized country attainable, and less idea it will probably end result from a favored revolution. acknowledged Amir Arjomand's The Turban for the Crown presents a considerate, painstakingly researched, and intelligible account of the turmoil in Iran which unearths the significance of this singular occasion for our figuring out of revolutions.
supplying an important historic heritage, Arjomand examines either the constitution of authority in Shi'ism (one of the 2 major branches of Islam) and the impression of the trendy nation on Iranian society, elements necessary to the comprehension of the revolution of 1979. He then describes the emergence of Khomeini; the infusion of petrodollars into the economic system; the blatant political corruption; and Khomeini's disposal of Bakhtiar, Bani-Sadr, and Bazargan, consolidation of non secular rule, and institution of a structure in line with a brand new interpretation of Islamic principles.
