A Religion of ProtestBook - 2010
For a Western world anxious to understand Islam and, in particular, Shi'ism, this book arrives with urgently needed information and critical analysis. Hamid Dabashi exposes the soul of Shi'ism as a religion of protest - successful only when in a warring position, and losing its legitimacy when in power.
