In this fully revised and expanded second edition, Dr. Milani offers new insights into the causes and profound consequences of Iran’s Islamic Revolution. Drawing on dozens of personal interviews with the officials of the Islamic Republic and on recently released documents, he presents a provocative analysis of the dynamics and characteristics of factional politics in Islamic Iran. Among the new issues covered are the events leading up to the Teheran hostage crisis, Ayatollah Khomeini’s life and writings, President Rafsanjani’s activities against the Shah, Rafsanjani’s recent reforms, Iran’s involvement in the Kuwaiti crisis, and the domestic and foreign policy challenges facing Iran in the post–Cold War era. The second edition is specifically revised for use as a text for courses dealing with Iran, the Middle East, and revolutionary movements.


Mohsen M. Milani is associate professor of politics, Department of Government and International Affairs, University of South Florida in Tampa.
