Reviews

"This outstanding book is an indispensable contribution to the study of contemporary Iran. It brings together a rich set of analytical and informative essays by leading authorities and covers a wide range of topics, from the significance of the Green Movement in terms of Iranian politics and society to the identity politics and culture of private business entrepreneurship in the Islamic Republic. Timely and thought-provoking, this multi-disciplinary volume on the dynamics of a culture and society undergoing change is essential reading for any serious inquiry into the contemporary Middle East." -Ahmad Ashraf, Center for Iranian Studies, Columbia University

"This volume offers a wide range of in-depth studies on Iran's recent history. It will be of immediate interest to Iran specialists as well as those working on social implications of religious political movements in general." - Ali Gheissari, adjunct professor of History, University of San Diego
