5 in stock (can be backordered)


Ali Shariati: Expanding the Sociological Canon: Ali Shariati is known as the “ideologue of the Iranian Revolution of 1979,” but this definition does not do justice to Ali Shariati as a classical social theorist on the global stage. What is needed is to focus on the sociological dimensions of his thought, thus regarding him as one of the most significant classics of alternative social theory.

Seyed Javad Miri is a Swedish-Iranian sociologist and Professor of Sociology at the Institute for Humanities and Cultural Studies in Tehran, Iran. He is also the Co-Director of the Institute for Critical Social Theory. His expertise is in critical social theory and contemporary Islamic thought.
