Summary:
"This book analyzes the impact of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and explores Ayatollah Khomeini's role in shaping the evolution of Iran's political system. Iran: The Legacy of the Islamic Revolution delves into the political perspectives guiding Ayatollah Khomeini and his supporters in the formation of a utopian Shiite Islamic society. This idealistic society eventually clashed with the demands of the modern world and the aspirations and expectations of new Iranian generations. The failure of Iranian learned classes and intellectuals in formulating a model of societal development explains many of the ongoing political and social conflicts in present-day Iran. This unsuccessful movement is also directly related to the struggle for a representative government that complies with Iranians' aspirations for a more liberal society."
