Editorial Reviews


"Sanasarian provides a clear and unadulterated picture of the intimidation, discrimination, and persecution of Armenians, Assyrians, Baha'is, Chaldeans, Iranian Christian converts, Jews, and Zoroastrians under the rule of the Ayatollahs. This very valuable addition to the contemporary history of Iran thoroughly explores the political and ideological relationships between non-Muslim religious minorities and the state, a subject seldom covered by other scholars." Choice

"...makes significant contributions to Iranian studies, as well as to the general area of majority-minority relations." Human Rights Quarterly

"...original and significant...a great contribution to our field and offers much to our understanding of state-minority relations and minority responses. Religious Minorities in Iran should be well-received by specialists and non-specialists alike." Middle East Studies Association Bulletin

"...those wishing to better understand the dynamics of the relationship between Iran's Islamic government and the country's various non-Muslim groups will find in this work a wealth of informative detail not readily availbe elsewhere." Journal of the American Academy of Religion

Book Description

Sanasarian's book explores the political and ideological relationship between religious minorities in Iran and the state during the formative years of the Islamic Republic. While the book is essentially empirical, it also highlights questions associated with exclusion and marginalization and the role of the state in defining those boundaries.

Format: Hardcover
If you are into Religion, and Politics in Iran this is the book for you. Most people think that there are only one religion in Iran, Islam. But there is much more than that, Christianity, Judiasm, Zoroastrianism, Bahia, etc. THis book focuses on the religious minorites after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, but still give history of what happened before to the minorites. It then goes into what happened during the revolution, who left, who stayed, who died, who got more power, etc... Then it goes on to describe what happened after the revolution and onward. EXCELLENT BOOK, the only down side to this book is the price.
