Published in affiliation with Bagher Al-Olum Institute of Higher Education In an Islamic society, just like all other human societies, government is not only testimony to the existence of a collection of institutions, but also indicates that there are especial attitudes and unique ways of behaving and acting exclusively called Islamic culture, which are actually a part of the Islamic civilization.

The major goal of this work is on the one hand, to study the logical and systematic framework of each of the theories of political system in Iran and then to probe into their ways of invoking the proof of the Quran and the Tradition and that of the consensus and reason on the other. The book discusses three significant theories of political systems, those of the Shiites, the Sunnis and the Khawarej.

 Each theory is divided into old and modern era. This way, besides explaining the general characteristics of the most important hexapartite theory in the Islamic thought, attempt has been made to evaluate their internecine relations, their influences on and from one another in the Islamic thought, and also the influence of great movements of thoughts outside the Islamic civilization, like western modernity in the general conception of theories of political systems. A separate section of the book is also assigned to the issue of theories of political systems in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

References come at the end of the book.

The present book is recommended as the main textbook for the course political system and government in Islamto the BA students of political sciences.
