Jason Straight, August 16, 2010 (view all comments by Jason Straight)
Understand the headlines! If you want to acquire a good grasp of Iranian history and Iran in the present this is the place to begin. Special attention is played to protest, revolutionary, workers, and student movements in Iranian as well as the interplay between Islam, modernization, and constitutionalism. An Iran is revealed that is perhaps the most important political experiment in the modern world. The only draw back is Keddie's sometimes abstruse wording and tendency to shift between past and present tense seemingly on a whim.
