Iran Facing Others Identity Boundaries in a Historical Perspective by Abbas Amanat

Iran Facing Others Identity Boundaries in a Historical Perspective


Iran Facing Others Identity Boundaries in a Historical Perspective by Abbas Amanat

Iran's long history and complex cultural legacy have generated animated debates about a homogenous Iranian identity in the face of ethnic, linguistic and communal diversity. The volume examines the fluid boundaries of pre-modern identity in history and literature as well as the shaping of Iranian national identity in the 20th century.
