The Shīʻite Movement in Iraq

Couverture
Saqi, 2003 - 391 pages
Shi'i Islam has been the focus of sustained attention since the success of the Iranian revolution in 1979. Yet beyond the Iranian case, the role of Shi'ism in politics across the Middle East has attracted little serious research. Even less attention has been given to Shi'ism and Shi'ite militancy in Iraq-which preceded the Iranian revolution--and less still to their nature and origins; the social movements they engendered; the ideological responses they gave rise to and their specific sources of power and legitimacy. This book is an attempt to fill the gap in our understanding of the social and cultural identity created through the ideology of Shi'i Islam in Iraq.
