"Mahmood T. Davari is uniquely qualified to write about this influential man, having been one of Mutahhari's students, as well as the student of Mutahhari's lifelong friend, Ayatullah Montazeri. Drawing upon firsthand reports, notes and interviews with Mutahhari's family and friends, the author highlights less-documented parts of the political trends in contemporary Iranian society. This book will appeal to scholars and students interested in modern Iranian politics and those with an interest in representations of Islam and Shi'ism."--BOOK JACKET.

This first full-length study of the history of Iranian anthropology charts the formation and development of anthropology in Iran in the twentieth century. The text examines how and why anthropology and culture became part of wider socio-political discourses in Iran, and how they were appropriated, and rejected, by the pre- and post-revolutionary regimes. The author highlights the three main phases of Iranian anthropology, corresponding broadly to three periods in the social and political development of Iran: *the period of nationalism: lasting approximately from the constitutional revolution (1906-11) and the end of the Qajar dynasty until the end of Reza Shah’s reign (1941) *the period of Nativism: from the 1950s until the Islamic revolution (1979) *the post-revolutionary period. In addition, the book places Iranian anthropology in an international context by demonstrating how Western anthropological concepts, theories and methodologies affected epistemological and political discourses on Iranian anthropology.

English description: The present book is the first large-scale research on the Central Asian crafts' risala, a pre-Soviet code of conduct, and describes the crafts spiritual and social roots by drawing on oral and written sources. German description: Das mittelasiatische Sendschreiben uber den Beruf, risala-yi kasb, stellt eine Textgattung eigener Art dar, die bislang nur marginal von der Forschung beachtet wurde. In ihr wird der Handwerksberuf durch gottliche Intervention begrundet und durch eine Kette von Uberlieferern legitimiert. Zugleich stellt die risala einen Moralkodex fur die gottgefallige Ausubung des Handwerks sowie die soziale Einbindung des Handwerkers dar. Mit dieser Arbeit liegt nun erstmals eine dichte Beschreibung der mittelasiatischen Handwerkswelt und ihrer Einbindung in ihr religioses und okonomisches Umfeld vor. Der interdisziplinare Forschungsansatz und die Verbindung von Quellenstudium und Feldforschung macht das Buch zu einer ergiebigen Quelle fur Islamwissenschaftler, Ethnologen, Religions- und Wirtschaftshistoriker und gibt Fragestellungen fur kunftige Forschungen vor.
