Abstract:

The Ismailis have enjoyed a long, eventful and complex history dating back to the 8th century CE and originating in the Imami Shi'i tradition of Islam. The Ismailis of different regions developed and elaborated their own distinctive literary and intellectual traditions, making outstanding contributions to Islamic thought and culture. In the Middle Ages, the Ismailis split into two main communities who followed different Imams or spiritual leaders. The bulk of the Ismailis, the Nizaris, came to have a line of Imams represented in modern times by the Aga Khans, while the Tayyibi Ismailis-known in South Asia as the Bohras-came to be led by da'is (vicegerents of their concealed Imams).

This collection of studies is the first scholarly attempt to survey the modern history of both Ismaili branches since the middle of the 19th century. For the Nizari Ismailis it covers a variety of topical issues and themes, including the modern history of their communities in Syria, Central Asia, South Asia and East Africa, as well as their migration to the West. The Aga Khans' modernizing, education and gender policies are also discussed, as well as the Aga Khan Development Network and approaches to the built environment. A separate part is devoted to the modern history of the Tayyibi Bohras and developments within this community. --Book Jacket.
