In this fully revised and expanded second edition, Dr. Milani offers new insights into the causes and profound consequences of Irans 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 Khomeinis life and writings, President Rafsanjanis activities against the Shah, Rafsanjanis recent reforms, Irans involvement in the Kuwaiti crisis, and the domestic and foreign policy challenges facing Iran in the postCold War era.The second edition is specifically revised for use as a text for courses dealing with Iran, the Middle East, and revolutionary movements.

Partly solid academic work but also partly an ill conceived, regime-friendly manifestation
2 October 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
Mohsen Milani is a professor of political science and known Iran well. However, his constant insistence that political rights under the Islamic regime are more prevalent than they were under the monarchy of Mohammed Reza Pahlvai defies logic, not because the Shah was a liberal democrat (he was not) but because to insist on this point is to give undue credit to a theocracy that is responsible for the politically motivated deaths of thousands of Iranians, including children and peaceful intellectuals. In the end, Dr. Milani has a very narrow scope of the nature of despotic regimes and his untimely regime friendly positions take away from his credibility.
Methodical. Analytical. Many Sources Uncited Elsewhere.

Dr. Milani's treatment is methodical, deeply analytical and cites many sources which have not been referenced in other books in English. While Keddie's 'Roots of Revolution' reaches similar conclusions wrt 1977-79, and Kamrava's 'Revolution In Iran' stands as a distinct analysis, neither dissects the events of this period and documents it to the extent done in this book. I am yet to find a more informative book.
A MODEST ATTEMPT

The book was somewhat dry, yet it was informative. Although on the surface the author tried to remain unbiased, it was evident that he was pro-khomeini. There was no mention of the 1000's of people murdered under his authority, especially that of the Bahai's who lived in Iran. Yet the Shah was portrayed as an oppressive ruler who had no regard for his people. Without knowing the actual history of Iran and that of the revolution, this book would be hard to follow.
