In a comprehensive and original analysis, Parvin Paidar considers the role of women in the political process of twentieth-century Iran and demonstrates how political reorganization has redefined their position. Challenging the view expressed by conventional scholarship that emphasizes the marginalization of Muslim women, the author asserts that gender issues are right at the heart of the political process in Iran. The implications of the study bear on the position of women throughout the Middle East and in the developing countries generally.

Review:

"...[a] highly informative presentation of the role of women in modern Iran [which] should be read by all interested in these fields....strongly recommended as a comprehensive and analytical survey with particular strength in the less-known postrevolutionary period." American Historical Review

"Paidar's approach is novel and rewarding....Her pathbreaking book is sure to reamin the definitive study on women in modern Iran for quite some time. Her methodology will provide a new model for the study of Middle Eastern Islamic countries where women face similar obstacles." Middle East Journal

"...this is a highly insightful book, which is easily accessible to both scholars and the general public, and promises to contribute significantly to debates on the nature of contemporary Iranian society and politics as well as to the field of gender studies in general." Mansour Bonakdarian, American Journal of Sociology

"Parvin Paidar's Women and the Political Process in Twentieth-Century Iran is the best of the dozen books that have appeared on the subject since the Islamic Revolution in 1979. Carefully researched, it contains rich information, especially on women's organizations, leaders, journals, and political activities in the course of the last 10 years. It is also lucidly written, permitting the reader to plow through a mass of details without getting bogged down in minutiae. The work can be used as an encyclopedia on women in modern Iranian politics." Ervand Abrahamian, Contemporary Sociology

"Paidar is to be congratulated for her in-depth, thorough, and multi-layered analysis." Ali Akbar Mahdi, The Historian

"The book's value lies in its detailed discussion of the development of laws and policies pertaining to women under the Islamic Republic." Shiva Balaghi, Middle East Report

"It is truly a great analysis of the Islamic Revolution which one would recommend highly." Sayyed Nadeem Kazmi, Dialogue

"...rightly described as a 'scholarly and thorough' research..." Dialogue

In a challenging and authoritative analysis of the role of Iranian women in the political process, Parvin Paidar considers the ways they have been affected by the evolutionary and revolutionary transformations of twentieth-century Iran. In so doing, she demonstrates how political reorganisation has of necessity redefined the position of women, and that, contrary to the view of conventional scholarship, gender issues are fundamental to the political process in contemporary Iran. The implications of the study bear on the broader issues of women in the Middle East and the developing countries generally. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521595728
