His homecoming from exile in 1979, and his funeral in Tehran a decade later, inspired two of the largest gatherings of people that modern history has ever seen. But behind the popular media images, who was Ayatullah Khomeini, the leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and architect of the first Islamic State of the modern era? This compilation of eleven essays in two parts, by academics, journalists, commentators and seasoned observers of political Islam, seeks to reassess Imam Khomeini’s life and achievement by placing it in the context of the broader Islamic movement that remains the driving force in contemporary Muslim history.
