'This unabridged translation of Ayatollah Khomeini's "A Clarification of Questions" provides a unique picture of the belief structure of Shi'ism. A compendium of 3000 "problems," Khomeini's treatise is intended to guide laymen in their religious duties, as well as to cover all of life's questions and needs, from personal hygiene and ritual purity to organ transplants and personal banking. The "Resaleh Towzih al-Masael," the latest in a long tradition of similar writings, reveals how the external world is viewed by the Shi'ite faithful; Khomeini's imprimatur gives it special relevance today.'
