Iran Summary

Iran: Between Tradition and Modernity by Ramin Jahanbegloo

The Iranian Revolution represented to intellectuals and professionals the potential of spiritual values to triumph over the great power of economic imperialism. Yet out of this revolution has emerged an identity crisis that touches Islamic ideological heights and reaches down to the very ground of Islamic practice. The contributors to this collection, experts on Iranian cultural and political history, analyze the 'fragmented self' of today's Iranian, refracted through that country's institutions, market forces, and modern thought. Each essay both deepens our understanding of contemporary Iran and adds to the broader discussion of the relationship between Islam and the West.

The essays in this volume critically analyze the intellectual life of Iran, where the Islamic state's ideologically motivated policies have had paradoxical effects and unanticipated consequences in society, resulting in a cultural ferment in which old certainties are questioned and conventional wisdoms are challenged on all sides. These insightful essays help us make sense of the ongoing debates that make contemporary Iranian society so exciting. -- H. E. Chehabi, Boston University
