Shi'a Sects

The earliest surviving work on Shii sects, Kitab Firaq al-Shia by al-Nawbakhti offers a uniquely Twelver Shia perspective on early Shii movements, including the Zaydis, the Ismailis, and extremist sects (ghulat). History, charisma, and ideology combine in a fascinating narrative which provides a window into the early Shii consciousness. Extensively annotated and highly readable, this is the first translation of this work to be published in the English language. An indispensable reference for Islamic historians, theologians, and researchers.
