A history of modern Iran by Ervand Abrahamian( Book )

35 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: In a reappraisal of Iran's modern history, Ervand Abrahamian traces its traumatic journey across the twentieth century, through the discovery of oil, imperial interventions, the rule of the Pahlavi's and, in 1979, revolution and the birth of the Islamic Republic. In the intervening years, the country has experienced a bitter war with Iraq, the transformation of society under the clergy and, more recently, the expansion of the state and the struggle for power between the old elites, the intelligentsia and the commercial middle class. The author is a compassionate expositor. While he adroitly negotiates the twists and turns of the country's regional and international politics, at the heart of his book are the people of Iran. It is to them and their resilience that this book is dedicated, as Iran emerges at the beginning of the twenty-first century as one of the most powerful states in the Middle East

Khomeinism : essays on the Islamic Republic by Ervand Abrahamian( Book )

18 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stern image of Ayatollah Khomeini struck the consciousness of the West much like the grade-B horror movies that appear on American screens early each summer. Sinister and alien looking, he at first aroused awe, fascination, and consternation. But when the season was over, his bearded image had become blurred and easily confused with competing horror shows. And now, more than a decade later, the West associates his name, when it cares to remember him, with "fanaticism," "radicalism," and, most prevalent of all, "religious fundamentalism." Western journalists consider him synonymous with religious atavism and search for similar figures in such far-afield places as Israel, Nigeria, and Indonesia

"As threats between Washington and Tehran escalate, it is of utmost importance for U.S. citizens to become informed. In Targeting Iran, David Barsamian examines the issues with three scholars who discuss the political complexities of the Iran-U.S. conflict, including the 1953 CIA coup and the rise of the Islamic regime; Iran's internal dynamics and competing forces; the influence of the Iraqi insurgency; and the possible long-term consequences of U.S. policy."--Jacket

Cracking petroleum with politics: Anglo-Persian oil and the socio-technical transformation of Iran, 1901-1954 by Katayoun Shafiee( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation rethinks the politics of the modern Middle East through a study of the British-controlled oil industry in Iran from 1901 to 1954. Based on research in governmental and business archives in Tehran and Abadan, Iran, the United Kingdom, and the United States, it examines a series of disputes and crises concerning petroleum exploration, property rights, the organization of labor, geological knowledge, accounting methods, and the calculation and control of profits. The goal is to understand how interactions between nature, technology, and politics reconfigured the local politics of the oil regions and how these in turn shaped the emergence of both the national state and the multinational oil corporation
