Faculty Book: Ervand Abrahamian
A History of Modern Iran
(Cambridge University Press, 2008)
In this portrait of a twentieth-century nation, Iran emerges as the product of oil and monarchs, intermittent warfare, outright revolution, and the formation, under clerical direction, of the Islamic Republic. Both regional and international in focus, Abrahamian’s study revisits such topics as “royal despots,” democratic reform, Shiism, Muhammad Reza Shah, and class conflict. Ervand Abrahamian is a distinguished professor in the department of history at Baruch College and the Graduate Center.
