"A work of provocative and historical depth. It offers an accessible and coherent analysis of Iranian politics and religious discourse by Khurasani and other politically involved clerics during the Constitutional Revolution. This important book encourages readers of various backgrounds to rethink one of the greatest revolutions in modern history."—International Journal of Middle East Studies

"By providing an exhaustive reading of Khurasani’s work, Farzaneh has done a great service to students of Iranian history and has shed light on the life and work of an important religious leader of the constitutional period."—American Historical Review

"By focusing on the leadership role of Khurasani this book is a welcome contribution to the study of Shi’i clerical involvement in the early twentieth century and its diverse impact on Iran’s constitutional politics."—Ali Gheissari, coauthor of Democracy in Iran: History and the Quest for Liberty

"Farzaneh provides an innovative and original approach to the thought of a renowned cleric, Muhammad Kazim Khurasani, who played a significant role in the Iranian Constitutional period of 1906–11."—Vanessa Martin, author of Iran between Islamic Nationalism and Secularism
