Iran: From Religious Dispute to Revolution

By Michael M. J. Fischer
Harvard University Press, 1980
314 pp. $17.50

A Harvard anthropologist explains the nature of Iranian Shi'ism and its role in society and politics. His account of the revolution of 1977-79 is of familiar events, but the prior background material gives it added dimensions, without, however, providing a key to the country's future.
