In this updated edition of Nikki Keddie's "Modern Iran"--itself a substantially revised and expanded version of her classic work "Roots of Revolution--"the author provides a new preface and a fully annotated and indexed epilogue, reviewing recent developments in Iran since 2003. Keddie provides insightful commentary on Iran's nuclear and foreign policy, its relations with the United Nations and the United States, increasing conservative and hard-line tendencies in the government, and recent developments in the economy, cultural and intellectual life, and human rights. "Reviews of the 2003 edition: " "[An] essential book for one's working library."--L. Carl Brown, "Foreign Affairs" "Shifting her historical focus from the roots of the Iranian revolution to its consequences, Nikki Keddie has expanded her original classic to include a sharply probing and perceptive guide to more than two decades of tumultuous developments in the Islamic Republic of Iran."--Gary Sick
