Editorial Reviews


'This is a rich and important collection. The scholarship is original and of the highest quality, and the book is a must for anyone seeking to understand Iran's place in the modern world.' - Stephanie Cronin, University of Northampton, UK

'A highly significant volume and the first of its kind to introduce Iran in the 21st century, through a variety of themes with clarity and detachment. Featuring outstanding contributions written from a fresh perspective, this book stresses the vital need for reform for a complex and rapidly changing society. A must read for the study of contemporary Iran.' - Vanessa Martin, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

'In a remarkably wide-ranging and forward-looking set of essays, the contributors to this volume – all prominent scholars in the field – offer the most comprehensive and trenchant analysis of Iran's economic, political, and cultural problems and prospects in the new century. More so than any other work on Iran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, this book will admirably serve the needs of scholars, students, journalists, and others interested in contemporary Iran and the dilemmas that it faces in its international relations.' - Ali Banuazizi, Boston College, USA and Past President of the Middle East Studies Association
