Event Description

The complex history of Iran includes diverse societies and economies against the background of dynastic changes, revolutions, civil wars, foreign occupation, and the rise of the Islamic Republic. In Iran: A Modern History, Abbas Amanat addresses debates about the nation’s culture and politics and explores the lasting implications they have had on the modern world.

How did an early modern Silk Road monarchy transform into a contemporary petroleum-fueled theocracy?

Abbas Amanat is professor of history and international studies at Yale University and director of the Yale Program in Iranian Studies at the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies.
