East and west of Zagros : travel, war and politics in Persia and Iraq 1913-1921 by C. J Edmonds( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The four years of the First World War, 1914 to 1918, mark an important turning-point in the history of the countries of Western Asia. They saw territories which theretofore had perhaps been visited only by an occasional foreign traveller turned into a battle ground for modern armies or brought under direct European administration. They coincided with the development of the small, high-speed, light-oil, internal-combustion engine, that was to effect profound changes in the manner of men's lives in every part of the world, nowhere more profound than in these Asiatic lands ... in this book I have sought to depict the political and social conditions, and the manners of the customs of the people, as I saw them in parts of Persia and what is now known as Iraq, during the nine years 1913 to 1921, that straddle the four years of the War"--Preface
Shiʻite Islam : polity, ideology, and creed by Yann Richard( Book )

24 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The return of Ayatollah Khomeyni to power and the installation of a Shi'i theocracy in Iran in 1979 brought the revolutionary aspects of Shi'ite Islam to the Western centre stage. Fuelled by pictures of bloodshed and atrocities, images of violence linked to Shia states have left their mark on Western perceptions. Shi'ism has today become synonymous with militancy and violence - Hezbollah, Islamic Jehad, hostage taking ... Yet, the media has taken merely one aspect of this important phenomenon: namely a contemporary Shi'ism firmly anchored in militancy. Yann Richard's careful narrative counters naive explanation, offering both a portrait of the spiritual and mystical faith which explains the deep history and mythology of Shi'ism up to the present. Islam is no more an Arab religion than Chritianity is a uniquely Western religion - not confined to the Arab world, the largest number of Muslims today are found in Asia, Indonesia, and the Indo-Pakistan peninsula, whilst the Iranian nation today represents the great centre of Shi'ite Islam. Not only does the narrative chart the spread of Shi'ite influence over the Imamite communities, it uncovers the fundamental beliefs of Shi'ite identity on which a polity has been built. Richard examines both the development of Shi'i as theology and as a cultural history. This book will stand the test of time to become a seminal text in Middle Eastern history and the study of world religions. -- Back cover
Iran : a social and political history since the Qajars by Yann Richard( Book )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2019 in French and English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Iran under the Qajars During its long history, Persia witnessed numerous invasions. But each time it took revenge on its assailants, who were generally from Central Asia, by turning them into Iranians through a culture of assimilation. In 1722, the army of the ruler of Qandahar, once again from the East, took Isfahan and brought an end to the ruling Safavid dynasty. Persia thus became a battlefield between dynasties that were unable to permanently establish themselves. This continued until the end of the eighteenth century, when the Qajars were finally able to take power. It is to this period that we now turn in order to understand the difficult relationship between Shiism and politics and how a conventional monarchy was able to give birth to an Islamic republic. It was also at this time that the European empires began to take an interest in Iran and to drag it into the modern world"--
