What did the Russian revolution of 1917 and the Iranian revolution of 1978-1979 share besides their drama? How can we compare a revolution led by Lenin with one inspired by Khomeini? How is a revolution based primarily on the urban working class similar to one founded to a significant degree on traditional groups like the bazaaris, small craftsmen, and religious students and preachers? Identifying a distinctive route to modernity--autocratic modernization--Tim McDaniel explores the dilemmas inherent in the efforts of autocratic monarchies in Russia and Iran to transform their countries into modern industrial societies.

Originally published in 1991.

About the Author:

Tim McDaniel is director of business valuations at Rea & Associates in Columbus, Ohio. McDaniel specializes in business valuation and succession planning. He is a recognized leader in the business valuation field, having been involved in over 1,800 valuation engagements and numerous merger-and-acquisition transactions. He also consults with family businesses on integrating family and business issues surrounding succession planning. McDaniel prides himself on using plain English to teach business owners the value of their most prized asset and how to increase that value. A certified public accountant and the author of nearly twenty articles in publications like CPA Voice, American Venture Magazine, and Practical Tax Strategies, he has obtained the top three professional valuation credentials (ASA, CBA, ABV).

Review:

An important and provocative comparative study. . . . [This book] is certainly a 'must' read for comparative, historical, and political sociologists of all stripes, not just specialists on Russia or Iran.---Jeff Goodwin, American Journal of Sociology

This is a stimulating, exciting read, a fresh take on the causes of (certain) revolutions, filled with perceptive analysis of two cases. . . . I heartily hope that it reaches the wide audience it deserves, which extends to anyone interested in good macrosociology generally.---John Foran, Contemporary Sociology
