The book is interesting on two counts: It traces the development in the Shi'ite jurisprudence which has now reserved for the clregy the authority that was the exclusive right of the 'infallible' Imam. Secondly, it addressesthe basic question as to the legality of the very existence of the strong Shi'ite clergy, pending the return of the 'infallible' Imam. -The Frontier Post, (Pakistan).

The Islamic regime that came to power after the 1978-79 Iranian revolution justified the rule of the Ayatollah Khomeini, and the Shi'ite imams in general, on the basis of the doctrine that the Islamic jurist is best suited to rule with justice in an Islamic country. Arguing that this concept has no apparent parallel in Sunni Islam, this study explores its origins in the Sunni/Shi'ite schism, which took place after the death of the Prophet, and traces its evolution to the present day. Drawing on exhaustive research in the Islamic libraries of Iran and Jordan, as well as discussions with leading jurors and scholars in Iran, Sachedina presents the first in-depth analysis of an Islamic phenomenon of vital contemporary social and political significance.

This book is a good history of development of the power of Muctehids in shi'ite Islam. Author takes from the time of fifth Imam to current day and explains the development of the concept of Vilayat. Various forms of Vilayat is discussed as they are developed in time due to socio-political and theological reasons. Author dwells consifdearly on few major Muctehids, Tusi, Hilli, Mufid and Al-Murtada, with whom all started. The current interpretation by Sabzawari, Burujurdi or Humeyni are not covered with necessary depth. At the end the book has a nice appendix regarding the Khums and whom it belongs. I wish the book was to finalaze more exposition of current conditions and rulings. the concept of Vilayat had too many dimensions and author covers all of them with patient. Time to time you think that you already read that concept in prior paragraph but they all have small nuances depending on their definition. One needs to read very slowly. The best part of the book is that, Author with full patient when he uses a phrase that has a concept associated in it and was covered before repeats same in brackets to remaind readers what it was, so you do not have to refer any dictionary in the back of the book.

This is perhaps one of the best books written in English on the topic of Wilayat al Faqih, and the doctrines which surround it. It draws from both contemporary and classical scholars from inside and outside of Iran in illuminating the main arguments that are put forth for the system known in English as "Governance of the Learned Jurist".

A must for those interested in the subject!

Hossein Modarressi's review (titled: The Just Ruler or the Guardian Jurist: An Attempt to Link Two Different
Shi'ite Concepts) on this book, published in the Journal of the American Oriental Society, Vol. 111, No. 3, pp. 549-562 destroys any credibility this book had.

The amount of mistakes, whether historical, mis-translations, poor understanding etc. are too many to list here and they were too many for Modarressi to list as well (which is why he only manages to review the Introduction and the first 2 chapters).
Erthai
One of the worst books on the subject. A major disappointment.
