All eyes are on Iran, and one man has emerged pivotal to the country's future direction: Mohammad Khatami. Not only his politics but his entire persona stand in stark contrast to his political rival Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose four-year presidency has proved so fatefully controversial for Iran.

When Mohammed Khatami stormed to his 1997 election victory in a landslide result, the world waited anxiously for the reforms and radical changes that he would bring to the Iranian Presidency. By the end of his term in 2005, general disillusion had spread among his supporters.

But when in early 2009, Khatami again announced his candidacy for the Presidency, he was greeted with massive enthusiasm and support. The Ahmadinejad period of the previous four years had dramatically restored the fortunes of this mild-mannered, cerebral cleric who sought to bring Iran into the twenty-first century, end its international isolation, mend relations with the US, and take its place as the leading regional power.

But who is this enigmatic cleric, so little known in the West, whose grasp of Iran's realities seems so much firmer than that of many of the secular figures around him? This book for the first time reveals the background, formation, and thinking of a man who may yet change the face of politics in the Middle East.

About the Author:

GHONCHEH TAZMINI is an Iranian-born independent political analyst who has worked with research institutes in Europe and Iran. Educated at the University of British Columbia and the London School of Economics, she holds a PhD in International Relations from the University of Kent at Canterbury.

Review:

""Ghoncheh Tazmini has effectively balanced...Khatami's personal and intellectual development with the historical and political context of Iran. [She] brings out very well the tension in Khatami between his reformist and conformist identities. This is a book that I have certainly been waiting for."" – Richard Sakwa, Professor of Politics, University of Kent

Book Description I.B.Tauris & Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. To understand contemporary Iran's notoriously complex politics, it is essential to grasp the monumental changes initiated by Mohammad Khatami. The previously little-known cleric stormed to victory in Iran's 1997 presidential elections with nearly 70 per cent of the vote, encouraging Iran's nascent civil society and reform movements 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. 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 developments in the country after the re-election of President Ahmadinejad in 2009. With new presidential elections looming in 2013, and the importance of Iran once again becoming paramount, this book offers vital analysis for all of those interested in the future of Iranian politics and the reform movement in the country.
