Book review by Bianca Devos

Full text

1This very helpful article compiles new trends in historical studies about Pahlavī Iran and consists of three parts almost equal in length: a general overview of the historiography of the period from 1921 to 1979, supplemented by extensive endnotes, and finally followed by a bibliography of 63 titles. The first part of the article sketches the hitherto prevailing perspectives on the Pahlavī era, explores the effects of the revolution in 1979 for historical research on the preceding period, and traces the recently changing focus, which moves away from the common state-centered view and takes other social agents into account. Examples of studies with new research approaches and new fields of research are given in an annotated form in the endnotes.
