The works gathered here are based on recent intensive fieldwork in Iran by leading scholars of Iranian culture. The contributors cover a multitude of important topics such as civil society, foreign relations, Islamism, religious-secular debates, and women’s issues. These essays challenge stereotypes that have developed about modern-day Iran and will stimulate debate and discussion among scholars and students of the Middle East.
