About the Author:

Nikki R. Keddie is professor of history at the University of California Los Angeles.

Review:

"If one has only limited time to gain an appreciation of the revolutionary force of Islam in Iran, it should be spent here."—Scott Armstrong, Washington Post Book World


"A work of excellent scholarship and rare impartiality."—John Renard, America

"Keddie offers the most comprehensive account of the modern history of Iran available in English in one volume. . . . Keddie’s research is thorough and impressive, and her presentation is remarkably objective in an arena in which a ‘balanced view’ is very hard to find. For any serious student of Iranian history and ‘Iranian affairs’, this book, like its first edition, Roots of Revolution, is indispensable. Essential. All libraries."—Choice


"With insightful and measured interpretations drawing on a rich lode of sources (cited and often annotated in the notes or bibliography), [this is an] essential book for one’s working library."—L. Carl Brown, Foreign Affairs


"[C]lassic stud[y] of Iran's last 100 years."―Foreign Policy


"Originally published in 1981, the book has been updated to include events through 2003. It is first and foremost a history, and Keddie is careful to show how cultural, economic and other factors have shaped Iranian events through the 1979 revolution and beyond."—Jonathan Hudec, NationalJournal.com


"Keddie has a strong grasp of historical material. She displays a characteristically impressive capacity for compression and consolidation of recent historical research."—Shaul Bakhash, New York Review of Books


"Shifting her historical focus from the roots of the Iranian revolution to its consequences, Nikki Keddie has expanded her original classic to include a sharply probing and perceptive guide to more than two decades of tumultuous developments in the Islamic Republic of Iran."—Gary Sick


"Roots of Revolution remains a classic in the field of Middle East Studies.  The new chapters provide up-to-date and comprehensive information on all aspects of post-revolutionary Iran, from politics and economics, to gender, human rights, rights of minorities, and relations with the United States. A must read for anyone interested in Iran's current struggle for democracy!"—Janet Afary, Author of The Iranian Constitutional Revolution: Grassroots Democracy, Social Democracy, and the Origins of Feminism


"I regularly use Modern Iran as a textbook in both introductory and advanced seminar classes. It is written in an engaging style and brings Iranian history into focus—particularly providing the necessary background to understand current events."—Monica M. Ringer, Amherst College

"Nikki Keddie's classic work, in this updated and expanded version that looks into both roots and results of revolution, is one of the most perceptive, impartial, and concise analyses of Iran's past and present."―Nayereh Tohidi, California State University


"For three decades, Nikki Keddie has been one of the most perceptive, sensitive and insightful analysts of Iran. Writing about a region where instant experts are the norm, Keddie's work has always been profoundly important and has had a major impact on the way Iranians think about themselves."—Ahmed Rashid
