About this book

Focusing substantially on the relation between the concept of constitutionalism and Islamic Law in general and how such relation is specifically reflected in the Shiite jurisprudence, this volume explores the juristic origins of constitutionalism, especially in the context of 1905 Constitutional Revolution in Iran.

Reviews

"This book provides a highly learned, stimulating and informative argument on the role of the constitutionalist 'ulama in the Iranian constitutional revolution, and the usuli theories that underpinned their understanding and arguments on the matter. It is thus a most significant contribution to the literature on constitutionalism and the Revolution." - Vanessa Martin, Department of History, Royal Holloway, University of London
