In a radical reappraisal of Iran’s modern history, Ervand Abrahamian
traces its traumatic journey across the twentieth century, through the
discovery of oil, imperial interventions, the rule of the Pahlavis, and, in
1979, revolution and the birth of the Islamic Republic. In the intervening
years, Iran has experienced a bitter war with Iraq, the transformation
of society under the rule of the clergy, and, more recently,
the expansion of the state and the struggle for power between the old
elites, the intelligentsia, and the commercial middle class. The author,
who is one of the most distinguished historians writing on Iran today,
is a compassionate expositor. While he adroitly negotiates the twists
and turns of the country’s regional and international politics, at the
heart of his book are the people of Iran, who have endured and
survived a century of war and revolution. It is to them and their
resilience that this book is dedicated, as Iran emerges at the beginning
of the twenty-first century as one of the most powerful states in the
Middle East.
ervand abrahamian is Distinguished Professor of History at
Baruch College and Graduate Center, City University of New York.
His previous publications include The Iranian Mojahedin (1989),
Khomeinism (1993), and Tortured Confessions (1999).
