History and Memoirs
"Resurrection and Renewal is in my judgment one of the most important books written on nineteenth-century Iran, and perhaps the fullest account we have of the development of any ideological movement in the Islamic Middle East in the nineteenth century. The story of how eschatological expectations became converted into a new religion is told here with exacting scholarship and an abundance of detail." -- Roy Mottahedeh, Professor of Islamic History, Harvard University
