9781845115944: Khatami's Iran: The Islamic Republic and the Turbulent Path to Reform (International Library of Iranian Studies)

To understand contemporary Iran’s notoriously complex politics, it is essential first to grasp the monumental changes initiated by Mohammad Khatami. This previously little-known cleric stormed to victory in Iran’s 1997 presidential elections with nearly 70% of the vote, encouraging Iran’s reform movement to flourish during his eight-year tenure as president. Ghoncheh Tazmini’s book offers a thought-provoking, astutely close-up yet systematic analysis of Khatami the man and the reform movement that supported him. She provides us with the first insight into Khatami and his politics, unravelling from the inside the dramatic emergence and consequences of Iran’s vibrant reform movement. Balanced and analytical, this book provides a comprehensive and finely detailed introduction to the subtleties of contemporary Iran’s complex political culture. At the same time, it is an important reference point for a critical period of Iran’s post-revolutionary trajectory, especially given the controversial post-Khatami developments in the country following the election of President Ahmadinejad.

About the Author:

Ghoncheh Tazmini is an Iranian-born independent political analyst who has worked with a number of economic and social research institutes. She holds a doctorate in International Relations from the University of Kent at Canterbury.

Review:

'The Presidency of Mohammad Khatami, from 1997 to 2005, was one of the most important and internationally significant periods in modern Iranian history. Breaking with the rigidities of the revolutionary period, while situating himself firmly with those who wished to consolidate the Islamic Republic, Khatami was a new voice that echoed across his country and the world. In this pioneering and enlightening study, Ghoncheh Tazmini traces the origins and development of Khatami's ideas, evaluates the successes and failures of his Presidency, and sets the scene for what will continue to be a crucial dividing line within contemporary Iran'. - Fred Halliday, author of 'Islam and the Myth of Confrontation'

Book Description I B Tauris & Company/Viva Books, 2010. Softcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. To understand contemporary Iran?s complex politics, it is essential first to grasp the historic changes initiated by Mohammad Khatami. This previously little-known cleric stormed to victory in Iran?s 1997 presidential elections with nearly 70 per cent of the popular vote, encouraging Iran first reform movement to flourish during his eight-year tenure as president. Ghoncheh Tazmini?s book offers a thought-provoking, astutely close-up yet systematic analysis of Khatami the man and the leader. She provides us with the first major study of Khatami and his politics, unravelling from the inside the dramatic emergence and consequences of Iran?s vibrant reform movement. Khatami?s political platform was predicated on consolidating the rule of law, encouraging intellectual discourse and advancing socio-political liberties. At the same time, Khatami aimed to set the country on the path to greater tolerance, integration into the world economy and rapprochement with the international community. Tazmini?s account of the man who became Iran?s charismatic and ambitious President-Reformer is authoritative and provocative, portraying Khatami as a leader who combined exceptional resilience with periods of hesitancy and indecision in the face of dilemmas associated with his role as the first Iranian figure to implement change in the Islamic Republic of Iran. She describes how, despite the institutional constraints associated with Iran?s power structure and powerful conservative opposition, the reform movement successfully managed to set in motion a pluralistic momentum in Iran. Balanced and analytical, this book provides a comprehensive and finely detailed introduction to the subtleties of contemporary Iran?s complex political culture. Timely and accessible, Khatami?s Iran is an important reference point for a critical stage in Iran?s post revolutionary trajectory. Contents: Acknowledgements ? Introduction ?
