What began as a faction of rebels to form a Shia empire and in almost 500 years later lead to what is today an Islamic Theocracy. Shaped by British Colonial interference, Ottoman aggression, Russian dominance and the Shia-Sunni divide, the Shia clerics also had to contend with their Persian monarchies. For the first time since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, Shia clerics found a defining and authoritarian role in Iran.


In this intensive book, Fazle Chowdhury asks questions and offers provocative answers. Promises of Betrayals; the History that shaped Iranian Shia Clerics is an impressive contribution to our understanding of the current regime in Tehran.
--Dr. Mohammed Ihsan, PhD, Professor of Defense Studies, King's College London.

This book contributes to a better understanding of the present Islamic leadership in Iran, and I recommend it to anyone interested in Islam and Iran today.
--Dr. Hooshang Amirahmadi, PhD, Professor of Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University
