Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Parsa (sociology, Dartmouth) has written what appears to be the most ambitious and far-reaching analysis of what happened in Iran. His approach uses a structural theory of revolution that concentrates on social groups (i.e. merchants, artisans, workers, clergy, etc.) as they interacted with each other and the political and economic currents of Iran in the 1970s and 1980s. Because traditional theories of revolution usually leave an unaccounted-for string or two when it comes to the Iranian revolution, Parsa's structural approach fares far better, as it was designed to include the anomalies that comprise Iran today. However, Parsa's text, diction, and format are for the very serious (and sociologically sophisticated) scholar. Ervand Abrahamian's Iran Between Two Revolutions ( LJ 7/82) remains the recommended popular text on the evolutionof Iran. Of the more recent attempts to explicate Iranian events, M. Reza Ghods's Iran in the Twentieth Century ( LJ 9/1/89) is worthy of acquisition. Paras's work is recommended for academic libraries anticipating curriculum demands in the area. See also Dilip Hiro's Holy Wars: The Rise of Islamic Fundamentalism , reviewed in this issue, above.
