The Persians : ancient, mediaeval, and modern Iran by Homa Katouzian( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, Iran has gained attention mostly for negative reasons--its authoritarian religious government, disputed nuclear program, and controversial role in the Middle East--but there is much more to the story of this ancient land than can be gleaned from the news. This authoritative and comprehensive history of Iran, written by Homa Katouzian, an acclaimed expert, covers the entire history of the area from the ancient Persian Empire to today's Iranian state. Writing from an Iranian rather than a European perspective, Katouzian integrates the significant cultural and literary history of Iran with its political and social history. Some of the greatest poets of human history wrote in Persian--among them Rumi, Omar Khayyam, and Saadi--and Katouzian discusses and occasionally "es their work. In his thoughtful analysis of Iranian society, Katouzian argues that the absolute and arbitrary power traditionally enjoyed by Persian/Iranian rulers has resulted in an unstable society where fear and short-term thinking dominate. A magisterial history, this book also serves as an excellent background to the role of Iran in the contemporary world
Musaddiq and the struggle for power in Iran by Homa Katouzian( )

34 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Musaddiq and the Struggle for Power in Iran is the first substantial life of Iran's most controversial twentieth-century politician. Drawing upon the considerable amount of new material about Musaddiq published in Iran since the 1978/9 revolution, Homa Katouzian conveys a powerful sense of his subject and of the significance of the political issues that confronted him." "Muhammad Musaddiq was the first of the great charismatic anticolonial campaigners if the post-war world. As Prime Minister of Iran in the early fifties, he was often in direct conflict with the West and, in 1953, the CIA removed him from office in a coup d'etat that restored the Shah's absolute powers. This full-scale biography of Musaddiq sets his life and career against the genesis and development of the Popular Movement of Iran. It presents a detailed account of Musaddiq's background and political formation and examines the history of the Popular Movement from Musaddiq's downfall in 1953 to his death in 1967. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
Iran : a beginner's guide by Homa Katouzian( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the Western-Iranian impasse continues to dominate international affairs, politicians and the media confidently proclaim Iran the greatest threat to the Western World. But this villainous mask obscures a far more complex identity formed by a vibrant and tumultuous history. Revealing the true face of this troubled country, acclaimed expert Homa Katouzian delves deep into Iran's past, exploring how an ancient civilization at a cross-road of diverse dynasties and religions grew to become an ethnically, linguistically and culturally rich nation still bound by the Persian tradition. Major political events and key figures are brought to life as centuries of authoritarian and arbitrary rule, chaos and revolution are unraveled and analyzed, shedding new light on modern Iran and making this an indispensable resource for understanding the current situation in the Middle East
Iranian history and politics : the dialectic of state and society by Homa Katouzian( )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first modern theory of Iranian history. It explains Iran's history and politics - past, recent and present - and solves many of the puzzles that both lay and professional observers have long felt about them. For example, it shows why there was a revolution in 1905-1906 for democracy and modernisation, and one in 1977-1979 for an Islamic republic (or communist state). Or why many of the Iranians who, in 1979, angrily supported the occupation and hostage-taking of American diplomats in Tehran, are now emotionally pro-American and wish that the United States would help them directly in changing Iran's regime." "The book offers a completely new and alternative approach to the understanding of Iranian history, politics and society, and its consequences for political action and behaviour in that country."--Jacket

33 editions published between 1372 and 2014 in English and Persian and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Visit the Unspun website which includes Table of Contents and the Introduction. The World Wide Web has cut a wide path through our daily lives. As claims of "the Web changes everything" suffuse print media, television, movies, and even presidential campaign speeches, just how thoroughly do the users immersed in this new technology understand it? What, exactly, is the Web changing? And how might we participate in or even direct Web-related change? Intended for readers new to studying the Internet, each chapter in Unspun addresses a different aspect of the "web revolution"--hypertext, multimedia, authorship, community, governance, identity, gender, race, cyberspace, political economy, and ideology--as it shapes and is shaped by economic, political, social, and cultural forces. The contributors particularly focus on the language of the Web, exploring concepts that are still emerging and therefore unstable and in flux. Unspun demonstrates how the tacit assumptions behind this rhetoric must be examined if we want to really know what we are saying when we talk about the Web. Unspun will help readers more fully understand and become critically aware of the issues involved in living, as we do, in a wired society. Contributors include: Jay Bolter, Sean Cubitt, Jodi Dean, Dawn Dietrich, Cynthia Fuchs, Matthew Kirschenbaum, Timothy Luke, Vincent Mosco, Lisa Nakamura, Russell Potter, Rob Shields, John Sloop, and Joseph Tabbi

Iran : politics, history and literature by Homa Katouzian( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a view of Iran through politics, history and literature, showing how the three angles combine. Iran, being a revolutionary society, experienced two great revolutions within the short span of just seventy years, from the 1900s to the 1970s. Both were massive revolts of the society against the state; the main objective of the first being to establish lawful government to make modernisation possible, and the second, to overthrow the absolute and arbitrary state, though this time mainly under the banner of religion and Marxism-Leninism and anti-Westernism. Neither of them succeeded in their lofty ideals for reasons that are explained and analysed within. The author also offers a detailed description of Iran's short-term society, examining the political and intellectual lives of two of the most remarkable intellectuals-cum-politicians of the twentieth century. This book provides an overview of modern Persian literature, both poetry and prose, and discusses the works of three of the most remarkable Persian poets and writers of the period. It considers classical Persian literature through the great variety of its form and substance, and neo-classical literary developments in the nineteenth century, covering the whole history of Persian literature. This is crowned in the last chapter by the love poetry of one of the greatest Persian poets. Iran will be of interest to students and scholars of Iranian studies and Middle East Politics."--Publisher's website
Sa'di : the poet of life, love and compassion by Homa Katouzian( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sa'di was one of the greatest Persian writers of both classical prose and poetry, and was revered in his time as a man of great wisdom and passion. Sometimes said to have lived over one hundred years, the body of his work was written in the thirteenth century. An indefatigable traveller, a mentor to the pious, and an analyst of morals both public and private, his best writing focused on the themes of physical and spiritual love." "Interspersed with extracts and critical analyses of the poet's verse, Katouzian explores Sa'di's place beside Rumi and Hafiz, Persia's other great poets. With a comprehensive guide to further reading, and including background about Sa'di's eventful life, this biography offers a unique insight into the aptly-named 'poet of life, love and compassion.'"--Jacket

Khalil Maleki : the human face of Iranian socialism by Homa Katouzian( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Khalil Maleki (1901-1969) was a selfless campaigner for democracy and social welfare in twentieth-century Iran. His was a unique approach to politics, prioritising the criticism of policies detrimental to his country's development over the pursuit of power itself. An influential figure, he was at the centre of such formative events as the split of the communist Tudeh party, and the 1953 coup and its aftermath. In an age of intolerance and uncompromising confrontation, Maleki remained an indefatigable advocate for open discussion and peaceful reform -- a stance that saw him jailed several times. This work makes a compelling case for him to be regarded among the foremost thinkers of his generation."--
