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

18 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 2,080 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
A history of modern Iran by Ervand Abrahamian( Book )

44 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,866 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

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 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation therefore considers the different kinds of puzzles and political possibilities that are opened up in the battle over defining what shape the oil industry and national state will take. It reveals the differences that tools from Science and Technology Studies make for historical and political analyses, which often attribute predetermined political outcomes (i.e. authoritarianism or lack of democracy) to the development of states relying on petroleum profits. In practice, modern techniques of power and domination produced concerned groups, such as oil workers, who battled to reconstruct the techno-econo-social collectives at the heart of each dispute in advantageous ways to block rivals and to represent the many silent actors of the worlds they mobilized
