This magnificent book provides a deep critical analysis of Iran's complex history, politics and culture in retrospective to its deep historical and political interaction with United States. This is a must read book for students and faculty in academia who unfortunately often do not have a deep and clear understanding of Iran and Middle East except a learned Orientalist view/attitude.

In amongst thousands of volumes of books written on Iran by from experts who have never set foot in Iran, to true experts on pre and post revolutionary Iran, a book worth reading has finally been compiled.

The author's mastery of Persian Literature and folklore thorughout this year has made this book
very unique in its analysis of the events of the thirty years and specifically the post Green Movement era.
Dabbashi is the only author whom I bleive has worked out the secrets of the Islamic Republic's survival and the mastery at which
the current and past establishments in Iran have managed to get around adversities and outmaneuver their enemies.
This book is written in very complex language and should be read several times.
I truly recommend it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author Hamid Dabashi has provided a persuasive account of the current opposition "Green Movement" and the futility of U.S. policy towards Iran. The Iranian-born Dabashi provides invaluable insight into the cultural, political and policy implications of U.S. and Iranian government actions. He also addresses the so-called schism between Shia and Sunni Islam with a much more nuanced eye than most Western observers would provide. This book is a refreshing change from the usual Manichaean demonization of Iran that passes for analyses in the U.S. mainstream media.

This book is highly recommended for those who seek a better understanding of the current situation in Iran, particularly concerning recent events in the Islamic Republic. It's a pity more of the decision makers in the U.S. State Department don't seem to read or appreciate books like this.
