Schirazi uses agricultural policy to demonstrate the complications and consequences resulting from the Islamisation of development policy in Iran. Refuting claims by Iran's religious leaders that their interpretation of Islam provides the best possible solution for development problems, not only in Iran, but throughout the world, the author concludes from his research that the conception of Islam as an ideological basis for development policy must change radically if it is to make any contribution to solving the problems that it faces.
