4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 23 Mar 2010

This review is from: A History of Modern Iran (Paperback)
The core text I needed for my Modern History of Iran course at Uni. Provides a pretty solid base to do further reading. Ideal for students and the general reader. One point would be that it is sometimes too brief and overlooking, most notably in the chapter on the Islamic Republic. Otherwise an excellent introduction to the History of Iran.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and informative book., 20 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A History of Modern Iran (Paperback)
This book is very "to the point" and is written in such language that almost everybody would get the author's message. The author sticks to the REAL history of Iran and summarises it in a way that after reading the whole book, you feel you know more about Iran and it's recent history. Highly recommended for those of you interested in a recent history of Iran. five stars

5.0 out of 5 stars A concise and detailed history of the modern Iran, 17 Mar 2014

This review is from: A History of Modern Iran (Paperback)
"A History of Modern Iran" goes through the modern history of Iran in very clear, very understandable language without, unlike most books about the topic, having to rely on hearsay, unverified accounts or personal or politically motivated interpretations of event.

It provides an easy to follow narrative, while at the same time giving the reader all the necessary information required to understand the events, such as clear explanations of social and regional matters, as well as much needed historical context and clarifications.

The book is truly a must-have for anyone serious about understand how Iran actually got to where it is now and a crystal clear narrative about a topic that most outsider, and even some insiders, know very little about.
