2 Confronting Iran

Ali M. Ansari

Hurst & Company, London, UK, 1850658099 / 9781850658092, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The Islamic Republic of Iran's ongoing nuclear programme has provoked a major and menacing crisis in its realtions with the US and other Western powers. Ali Ansari argues that crisis is a symptom of broader, long-term fissures in US-Iranian realtions, and in Confronting Iran he seeks to disentangle the myths that are at the bottom of this gulf in understanding, whihc is compounded by the nature of the states, their foreign policy establishments and the fraught history of their relations since the 1979 revolution. Ansari reviews the historical antecedents of the crisis, in particular US-Iranian realtions since 9/11 and attempts by the EU to broker a settlement acceptable to all parties. He argues that the European position has been dictated as much by its relations with the US in the wake of the invasion of Iraq as by domestic politics in Iran, and he concludes by assessing the election of Mahmud Ahmadinejad as President and its likely impact on the view from Tehran and Washington. This account of a potential flashpoint in realtions between the Muslim world and the West could not be more timely. Contents Introduction 1. Imperial Hubris 2. 1953 3. 1979 4.

6 Iran: Royalty, Religion and Revolution

Saiyid Athar Abbas Rizvi

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1980, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Although the history of the Iranian monarchy itself goes back 2,500 years, the periods of strong rule during important dynasties, such as the Achaemenids and the Sasanids, were very short-lived. After the Arab conquest in the reign of 'Omar (634-644), Iran was ruled first from Medina and then from Damascus and later from Baghdad. Later still, Iran was ruled largely by Turkish and Mongol invaders. The Iranian people had never, however, hesitated to resist tyrannous rule. From the time of the legendary Kaveh in Ferdowsi's Shahnama to that of Ayatollahol 'Ozma Rouhollah Khomeini, the Iranian masses have struggled to establish a just and dynamic society. There has been no dearth of counter-revolutions, demagogues and impostors either. Many revolutions designed to overthrow despotism culminated in a new tyranny leading to a fresh revolution. Although the present work describes all important rebellions, revolutions and terrorist activities in Iran, it sees revolution only in terms of those human endeavours which fulfill a crucial function in the development of society; and does not seek to pass moral judgments. The work is also designed to analyse the process of reconstruction and revolution within the framework of the political, religious, literary and artistic development of Iran.
