focuses on the way in which Imam ‘Ali (‘a) interacted with the Caliphs after the death of the Prophet (s). Despite having his right usurped, Imam ‘Ali (‘a) willingly offered his assistance and support to the Caliphs in political, economic, military, judicial, and religious matters. His intention was the preservation of the unity and stability of the Islamic Ummah from the dangers of division, disintegration, and destruction.

Available for full download, but it's in French. Author is the well known Lammens later cited by Madelung etc.

You get a measure of his perspective from the following:

Quote

Ah ! si j'avais été présent, soupira-t-il, j’aurais souscrit à toutes les demandes de Hosain ; j'aurais écarté la mort de sa tête et, pour le sauver, au besoin sacrifié la vie d'un de mes enfants !» Le caractère indépendant et ouvert du calife ne permet pas de suspecter la sincérité de ces affirmations. Les femmes, les parentes de Yazîd (2) s’empressèrent autour des malheureuses ‘Alides pour les consoler et, pendant trois jours, consacrèrent à la mémoire de Hosain une solennelle « manâha » (3) ou lamentation !

Here's what google translate renders the above as:

Quote

"Ah! if I had been present, he sighed, I would have subscribed to all the demands of Hosain; I would have removed death from his head and, to save him, sacrificed the life of one of my children! "The independent and open character of the caliph does not allow us to suspect the sincerity of these statements. The women, the relatives of Yazid, hastened around the unfortunate 'Alides to console them, and for three days they consecrated to the memory of Hosain a solemn "manha" (3) or lamentation!

In this text, the author Al-Tijani Al-Samawi tries to present the idea that a contemporary Muslim, who lives in the civilization of the twentieth century and faces different challenges, cannot abide by the Islamic Sharia correctly unless he follows and associates with the Immaculate Progeny of the Prophet (S). The fact that the Holy Qur'an and the Prophet’s Sunnah have been liable to misinterpretation and distortion creates more need for us to understand more the need of the infallible Imams to guide us and provide the correct interpretations as teachers and experts of the holy Qur’an.
