Political Theology in Post-Revolutionary Iran: Disenchantment, Reform and the Death of Utopia (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Political Theology in Post-Revolutionary Iran follows the transformation of Iran's post-revolutionary religious intellectuals, as their outlook has evolved from regime support to dissent. Throughout the revolution's second decade, these intellectuals began to re-enivsage the political order and its theological foundations. This book focuses particularly on the intellectual background and theoreticians of the reform movement of the late 1990s and administration of President Hojjat al-Islam Mohammad Khatami, concluding in an analysis of the Green movement of 2009 and the ongoing struggle for political and ideological transformation within and without the institutions and power structures of the post-revolutionary Islamic state. It occupies a key place in the debates surrounding Islamic political reform in both Iran and the broader Muslim world. This book is of interest to students and scholars of Middle Eastern Studies, particularly Middle Eastern history, politics and theology.
