Summary This book clarifies Khomeinis views on nationalism, sectarianism, and peace and war by putting the Iran-Iraq war at center of understanding of Khomeinis ideology. Moreover, by making comparisons between Khomeinis thoughts before and after the revolution with his words during the Iran-Iraq war, this book helps us see how his discourse during the conflict was shaped by such thoughts. Also, such a comparison helps us understand the complexities of Khomeinis doctrines and their evolvements. Additionally, by offering a unique set of methodological tools, this book introduces a new way to study political leaders in Iran and other parts of the Middle East. Meysam Tyaebipour is a researcher and human right activist. Meysams area of interests are the Middle East politics and political ideology
