Cambridge Middle East Library. By (author) Chibli Mallat. This is the first comprehensive study of the life and works of Muhammad Baqer as-Sadr - an Iraqi scholar who made an important contribution to the renewal of Islamic law and politics in the contemporary Middle East. Executed in 1980, Sadr was the most articulate thinker and a major political actor in the revival of Shi'i learning, which placed Najaf in Southern Iraq at its centre. Dr Chibli Mallat examines the intellectual development of Sadr and his companions who included Ruhullah al-Khumaini and assesses Sadr's innovative approaches to the study of law, economics and banking.

contemporary Middle East.

This is the first comprehensive study of the life and works of Muhammad Baqer as-Sadr - an Iraqi scholar who made an important contribution to the renewal of Islamic law and politics in the contemporary Middle East. Executed in 1980, Sadr was the most articulate thinker and a major political actor in the revival of Shi'i learning, which placed Najaf in Southern Iraq at its centre. Dr Chibli Mallat examines the intellectual development of Sadr and his companions who included Ruhullah al-Khumaini and assesses Sadr's innovative approaches to the study of law, economics and banking. The author convincingly demonstrates how Sadr's ideas and activities were influential in the rise of political Islam across the Middle East and played an important part in the Iranian revolution of 1979.

Mallat's excellent, pathbreaking study reveals the story of the most important intellectual development of our era in Shi'i Islam, what he calls the Islamic Renewal (or, more grandly, the Islamic Renaissance) which took place in the city of Najaf in southern Iraq during the 1960s and 1970s. The renewal focused on two areas of Islam's Sacred Law, constitutional law and economic issues (labor law, banking, etc.). How, the jurisprudents asked, from an Islamic viewpoint does one form state institutions and produce and distribute wealth?
Muhammad Baqir as-Sadr (1935-80) provided key answers to these questions in his dozens of books. Two stand out. According to Mallat, Sadr's brief study Sources of Power in the Islamic State provided "the blueprint of Iranian fundamental law" after the Islamic Revolution. In a massive and now-renowned study, Our Economics, Sadr almost single-handedly developed the notion of Islamic economics. All of this had direct political consequences, for ideas developed in Najaf spread through a "Shi'i International." Ruhollah Khomeini was there in Najaf (though, Mallat adds he was only "one scholar among many") as were Muhammad Husayn Fadlallah and Muhammad Mahdi Shams ad-Din (today, leaders of Lebanon's Shi'is) and Muhammad Baqir al-Hakim (head of the Iraqi Shi'i opposition movement). In brief, the violent and aggressive politics coming out of Tehran has deeper intellectual roots-and so probably greater staying power-than many of us would like to see.

This book should be read by anyone with an interest in Islamic Law, or Islam in general. As a former student of Dr. Mallat at SOAS I don't pretend to be objective, but I nevertheless strongly recommend it.
