Summary

These chapters on nomads, farmers, shopkeepers, labor organizers, provincial officials, and elites trace the network of tension and opposition that supported the revolution of 1978–79. Two chapters on religious leaders and the pervasive influence of religion in Iranian life illuminate the nature of change within a tradition, and chapters on cinema and theatre show the interaction between politics and culture.

By focusing on specific groups in Iranian society, the authors join the scholarly reassessment of those postwar theories of modernization that have proven inadequate. Their work indicates that our conception of “modern” may have to account for characteristics and societal relationships that only recently were thought to disappear during the course of “modernization.”

Michael E. Bonine is Assistant Professor of Oriental Studies at the University of Arizona. Nikki R. Keddie, Professor of History at UCLA, has recently been elected President of the Middle East Studies Association.
