Title: A well-balanced and most authoritative book on Iran's modern history

I have used Professor Nikki Keddie's Modern Iran in the classes I teach on gender and women in the Middle East. By far, this updated edition is the most comprehensive yet concise and accurate social history of modern Iran available for the students of the Middle East, especially Iran. This is a well-balanced account of the past two centuries of Iran, written in a lucid and accessible language. Throughout its 12 chapters and conclusion, it remains keen on the role of Iran's internal, regional and international politics, religion and Shii discourse, secular as well as religious intellectuals, socioeconomic factors, culture, women and gender. Highly Recommended.

excellet source on iran

This is an excellent source not only for scholars but for educated readers and students interested in the history of Iran.

Authoritative and accessible

this is an excellent book: authoritavie, accessible, and balanced... written by the greatest living scholar of Modern Iranian history. Definately the book to start with if you are looking for an overview of Iran in the last two centuries.

Accurate book

This is a great book by a true Iranian expert. Professor Keddie knows Iran well. She is not afraid to tell things that some Iranians do not accept or want to believe. Most of her thesis is based on massive amount of research. This is a very good book for those who know Iran well but might be too hard to read for those with little knowledge of Iran or the MIddle East. I enjoyed reading it and learned a lot even though I studied the subject for years at Harvard and UCLA. One of the better books about Iran.
