Reviews

"The Iranian Political Language revisits Iran's modern social history from the late nineteenth century to the present. This is a critical study of the concept and practice of democracy for ordinary people both in the southern provinces of Iran and among the Iranian intellectuals. This book has potential to generate critical debates on democracy, socialism, egalitarianism, and the role of ordinary people in the quest for democracy in Iran. It contributes to the growing field of history from below in modern Iran." - Mojtaba Mahdavi, University of Alberta, Canada
