The political economy of Iran underwent the fundamental transition from feudalism to modernity from the early 19th to the 20th century: a period which was a vital watershed in Iran's historical development. This book provides a critical analysis of Iran's economic, social, and political development and shows how the path to modernity, far from smooth, was hindered by both internal and international factors. These included a powerful monarchy with little interest in administrative and economic reform, a large aristocracy frequently holding vital provincial governorships and frustrating effective central government and a failure to create a modern civil service, military, banking, finance, or communications - the essential infrastructure for economic development. Reformers were marginalized and business suffered. And the all-powerful ulema were a further brake on modernization. On the international front, the rivalry of Britain and Russia compounded the problems: both acting to control Iran and to further their own interests.

Hooshang Amirahmadi explores the roots of present-day challenges to modernization and progress and, using a wealth of primary sources and original research, has produced a work which is invaluable for students of modern Iranian history, politics, and Iran's political economy.

چرا ایران موفق نشد به کشوری توسعه یافته و دموکراتیک تبدیل شود و چطور در عصر مدرن انقلابی اسلامی در این کشور رخ داد؟ اقتصاد سیاسی ایران در عصر قاجار با کندوکاو در تحولات نهادهای دوران حساس ملت­سازی بین سال­های ۱۸۰۰ تا ۱۹۲۰ کمک می­کند به این پرسش­ها پاسخ دهیم. خواندن این کتاب جامع درباره‌­ی گذار دشوار و ناقص به مدرنیته برای هرکسی که­ می‌خواهد درکی عمیق­‌تر از چالش­‌های پیش­روی ایران امروز و در واقع بسیاری از کشورهای در حال توسعه به دست ­آورد، ضروری است.
