Iran in the 20th century : historiography and political culture by Touraj Atabaki( )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political upheaval has marked Iran's history throughout the twentieth century. Wars, revolutions, coups and the impact of modernism have shaped Iran's historiography, as they have the country's history. Originally based on oral and written sources, which underpinned traditional genealogical and dynastic history, Iran's historiography was transformed in early 20th century with development of a "new" school of presenting history. Here emphasis shifted from anecdotal story-telling genre to social, political, economic, cultural and religious history writing. A new understanding of the nation state and the importance of identity and foreign relations in defining Iran's place in modern world all served to transform the perspective of Iranian historiography. Touraj Atabaki here brings together a range of rich contributions from international scholars who cover the leading themes of the historiography of 20th-century Iran, including constitutional reform and revolution, literature and architecture, identity, women and gender, nationalism, modernism, Orientalism, Marxism and Islamism--Publisher's description

Men of order : authoritarian modernization under Ataturk and Reza Shah by Touraj Atabaki( )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Men of Order is the first attempt to compare and contrast the 'authoritarian modernization' of Ataturk and Reza Shah in the 1920s and 1930s and to trace the development and implementation of this modernization, assessing its effect on both states. The contributors to this book form a team of internationally renowned scholars. They explore the religious impediments facing both rulers; the development of arbitrary rule; the role of political parties, especially in the single-party regime in Turkey; cultural innovation including 'dress codes for men'; language reform; the building up of armies and exercise of foreign policy. The book reveals Reza Shah and Ataturk - the icons of authoritarian modernization - each as a unique mixture of the 'reforming pasha' of the nineteenth century and European dictators of twentieth-century Europe. It is thus a ground-breaking study connecting the political the historical phenomena central to any understanding of the twentieth century."--Jacket

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first study to observe the practice of modernization in Turkey and Iran not only from above, by examining the measures adopted by the political regimes of the late Ottomans, Ataturk and Reza Shah, but also from below, exploring how different social levels contributed to the drive for modernity. It is a full and thorough analysis of how these societies reacted to reform and change."--BOOK JACKET

Iran and the First World War : battleground of the great powers by Touraj Atabaki( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The First World War, leading to the overthrow of the Qajar regime and replacement by Reza Shah, was pivotal in the history of modern Iran. The Constitutional Revolution of 1906-09 aimed to abolish the arbitrary regime and bring in a modern constitution and parliament. But growing provincial unrest and rebellion by nomadic peoples brought chaos and instability, heightened by the strains of war and intervention by foreign powers. Iran was on the brink of disintegration, modernisation had failed, and growing frustration and pressure from the disillusioned middle classes, intelligentsia and urban population, set the stage for centralisation of power under the Man of Order - Reza Shah

Central Asia and the Caucasus : transnationalism and diaspora by Touraj Atabaki( )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, a number of linkages have been established between newly independent Central Asian states, or populations within them, and diaspora ethnic groups. This book explores the roles that diaspora communities play in the recent and ongoing emergence of national identities in Central Asia and the Caucasus. The loyalties of these communities are divided between their countries of residence and those states that serve as homeland of their particular ethno-cultural nation, and are further complicated by connections with contested transnational notions of common cultures and 'peoples'. Written by highly respected experts in the field, the book addresses issues such as nationalism, conflict, population movement, global civil society, Muslim communities in China and relations between the new nation-states and Russia. This innovative book will interest students and researchers of transnationalism and Central Asian studies
