"Arash Khazeni accomplishes what many promise but few do: he writes peoples of the margins into history. . . . This lucidly written, nuanced monograph . . . will be a valuable resource in advanced undergraduate and graduate classrooms."―Samri Ates, American Historical Review, October 2011
"In taking the view from below, as it were, from the level of Bakhtiyari people and their leaders, Dr. Khazeni introduces here an entirely new historical perspective on the much romanticized Zagros peoples; incorporating ethnographic data and attending to environmental conditions he broadens the historical perspective to its fullest and allows an appreciation of the circumstances of life that transcends other historical accounts of conditions of the Zagros tribes; and in his extensive and thorough use of documents and illustrations of all kinds that pertain to Bakhtiyari history, his treatment of sources as a historian is flawless. Altogether, this exemplary book fully fits the scope and spirit of the Pourshariati Award."―Middle East Studies Association
"This book is the most detailed and vivid account of tribes in nineteenth―century Iran yet to be written and sheds new light on Iranian social and cultural history."―Afshin Marashi, California State University at Sacramento
"Arash Khazeni’s book fills an important gap in our understanding of tribes and center―periphery relations in the Qajar period, placing the Bakhtiyari tribes’ involvement in the Constitutional Revolution within the context of broader trends in Bakhtiyari politics and history."―Kamran Scot Aghaie, University of Texas at Austin
