Intellectual Trends in Twentieth-Century Iran, a collection of essays by journalists and Iranian scholars based in both North America and the Middle East, examines the major intellectual trends in twentieth-century Iran and explores the role that the intellectual has played in shaping the debates and political culture in both prerevolutionary and postrevolutionary Iran. The issues explored in this collection are among the most provocative in contemporary Iran and range from the hermeneutics of Mojtahed Shabestari to the movement of the reformist press to clerical discourses on the subject of women's rights. Additionally, Intellectual Trends discusses broader issues such as Iranian liberalism and the relationship between tradition and modernity with a depth and insight that is essential in understanding the diverse issues facing a contemporary Middle East. Together, the collection provides a valuable account and analysis of the intellectual currents of this pivotal state across the last century.
