Editorial 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
