Iran Since the Revolution

Edited by Barry M. Rosen

Social Science Monographs, 1985, 187 pp.

A book which should help to dispel some of the prevalent confusion concerning Iran under the regime of Khomeini and the mullahs. As a collection of conference papers it suffers from a lack of focus, but the individual contributions are uniformly good. Those on internal affairs are less meaty than those on the international aspects-there is little on the economy, for example-but there are compensating strengths in the treatment of the ideological factors which have given the revolution and the regime their driving force.
