Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Being a former doctoral degree student of late Honorable Professor Richard W. Cottam at the University of Pittsburgh (He supervised my dissertation and I shall forever remain grateful to him for that), I feel honored to be commenting on his work. I read it soon after it was published. This is among the greatest analyses on Iran, state and society. Cottom's analysis still remains extant and will be very useful to forthcoming students of Iran, Middle East and Central Asia. Iran must not be studied in isolation, but in the context of broader surrounding region with similar cultures. Some of the arguments made by Cottam at that time may now be revised and updated under the influence of the constantly changing and developing sociopolitical cultural trends, but, even today students will get great insights he offered. Professor Cottam had the rare gift of alternative perspectives and we, his students will always remember him as a gracious teacher from whom we learned. Aftab Kazi
