Khalil Maleki (1901-1969) was a selfless campaigner for democracy and social welfare in twentieth-century Iran. His was a unique approach to politics, prioritising the criticism of policies detrimental to his country's development over the pursuit of power itself. An influential figure, he was at the centre of such formative events as the split of the communist Tudeh party, and the 1953 coup and its aftermath.

In an age of intolerance and uncompromising confrontation, Maleki remained an indefatigable advocate for open discussion and peaceful reform - a stance that saw him jailed several times. This work makes a compelling case for him to be regarded among the foremost thinkers of his generation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Khalil Maleki is not only an authoritative and insightful account of the political life and ideas of Iran's foremost democratic socialist during the middle decades of the twentieth century, but an erudite and incisive analysis of the country's intellectual and political history through that fateful century. It is based on a wealth of primary sources and the author's own lifetime of prodigious scholarship.' -- Ali Banuazizi, Professor of Political Science, Boston College
`A major contribution to the recovery of the rich, but lesser-known, tradition of the Iranian Left. Khalil Maleki's life, and his intellectual journey, tell the story of the complicated road Iran travelled in its desire to achieve a "national" modernity, and to be at "home" with the modern world. In this context, Dr Katouzian's work deserves considerable scholarly attention for its achievement.' -- Ali Mirsepassi, Professor of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, New York University
`Drawing on his lifetime's work on Iranian modern history, Homa Katouzian has provided us with a rich and authoritative account of Khalil Maleki's political and intellectual life.' -- Roham Alvandi, Associate Professor of International History, London School of Economics and Political Science
