Contemporary Iran: Economy, Society, Politics

Ali Gheissari


Iran is a key player in some of the most crucial issues of our time. But because of its relative diplomatic isolation and the partisan nature of conflicting accounts voiced by different interest groups both inside and outside the country, there is a shortage of hard information about the scale and depth of social change in today's Iran. This book offers chapters on the nature and evolution of Iran's economy, significant aspects of Iran's changing society, and the dynamics of its domestic and international politics since the 1979 revolution, focusing particularly on the post-Khomeini period.

Keywords: Iran, economy, society, domestic politics, international politics, 1979 revolution, Khomeini
