Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this updated edition of Nikki Keddies Modern Iran—itself a substantially revised and expanded version of her classic work Roots of Revolution—the  author provides a new preface and a fully annotated and indexed epilogue, reviewing recent developments in Iran since 2003. Keddie provides insightful commentary on Irans nuclear and foreign policy, its relations with the United Nations and the United States, increasing conservative and hard-line tendencies in the government, and recent developments in the economy, cultural and intellectual life, and human rights.

Reviews of the 2003 edition:

 “[An] essential book for ones working library.”—L. Carl Brown, Foreign Affairs

“Shifting her historical focus from the roots of the Iranian revolution to its consequences, Nikki Keddie has expanded her original classic to include a sharply probing and perceptive guide to more than two decades of tumultuous developments in the Islamic Republic of Iran.”—Gary Sick

Synopsis:

This title brings the story of modern Iran to the 21st century, exploring the political, cultural, and social changes of the past quarter century. Keddie provides insightful commentary on the Iran-Iraq war, the Persian Gulf War, and the effects of 9/11 and Iran's strategic relationship with the US.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [323]-366) and index.

Synopsis:

"Keddie has a strong grasp of historical material. She displays a characteristically impressive capacity for compression and consolidation of recent historical research."--Shaul Bakhash, New York Review of Books

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.
