The Shi'i World: Pathways in Tradition and Modernity

Except for a handful of recent sources, there has been a lack of ample introductory level texts suitable for teaching Shi'ism to undergraduate students. Andrew Newman’s Twelver Shiism: Unity and Diversity in the Life of Islam, 632 to 1722 (Edinburgh U.P., 2013), Farhad Daftary’s A History of Shi6i Islam (I.B.Tauris, 2013) and Najam Haider’s Shi6i Islam: An Introduction (Cambridge U.P., 2014) have begun to fill in this gap. Daftary, and Amyn Sajoo and Shainool Jiwa,have added to this brief list the essays collected in The Shi6' World: Pathways in Tradition and Modernity.
