  1. I have written a paper on the political dimension of Shia Islam with a good introduction for reverts and the political dimension discussed under the headings of the 5 roots and 10 branches of Islam, with a conclusion looking ahead.

    I am also working on the 4th political theory that B. Ali Shariati discussed and is now, 60 years later, under review/consideration by the philosopher Alexander Dugan from Katehon.ru.
