Substantially about the relation between the concept of constitutionalism and Islamic Law in general and how such relation is specifically reflected in the Shi'ite jurisprudence, this volumeexplores the juristic origins of constitutionalism, especially in the context of 1905 Constitutional Revolution in Iran. Boozari has introduced the most important fatwas issued by the religious leaders in support of constitutionalism during the 1905 revolution, unfolded their underpinning theories, and analyzed the juristic technicalities of the terms.
Amirhassan Boozari is a Lecturer in Law at UCLA Law School.
