Book Description

What began as a faction of rebels to form a Shia empire and in almost 500 years later lead to what is today an Islamic Theocracy. Shaped by British Colonial interference, Ottoman aggression, Russian dominance and the Shia-Sunni divide, the Shia clerics also had to contend with their Persian monarchies. For the first time since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, Shia clerics found a defining and authoritarian role in Iran. Fazle Chowdhury explores in his book Promises of Betrayals; the history that shaped the Iranian Shia clerics.
