For the AIS 2014 Tenth Biennial Conference in Montreal, a Round Table Discussion has been organized to critically assess Hossein Bashiriyeh’s contribution to Iranian studies from a number of disciplinary and analytical perspectives.
Starting with his State and Revolution in Iran (1984), Hossein Bashiriyeh has made a major contribution to the literature of political sociology in Iran. In a scholarly corpus comprising over twenty books he has addressed such topics as mobilization/revolution, civil society/democracy, and obstacles to political development.
