"The author’s sophisticated analysis of five social histories reveals a cogent and lucid picture of what it meant to grow up Armenian Iranian and ethnic in Iranian society while realizing their national identity as Iranian."—Review of Middle East Studies

"Innovative and original, in addition to being highly informative....This is what Yaghoubian offers: a history from below that gives voice to ordinary individuals finding themselves at the receiving end of identity formation. Hopefully, other scholars will follow the unbeaten track opened by Yaghoubian."—American Historical Review

"The individual biographies sketched in this volume enrich social biography literature by giving voice to individuals whose lives would otherwise attract little attention from scholars engaged primarily in archival research."—International Journal of Middle East Studies

"In this insightful and original book, Yaghoubian examines Iranian nationalism from the perspective of the country’s Armenian minority. He makes an important contribution to the study of nationalism by linking a view from below—which focuses on how individuals are drawn to, interact with, and help shape nationalism—and a view of nationalism from the perspective of state minorities"—American Ethnologist

"This is a theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich work that adds an entirely new dimension to the study of Iranian nationalism, making it required reading for both specialists and general readers."—Afshin Marashi, author of Nationalizing Iran: Culture, Power, and the State, 1870–1940

"The reader gets a vivid portrait of what it has meant to grow up Armenian in Iran. . . . a nuanced view of how these individuals experienced the small and large events of their lives in relation to the main questions that characterize twentieth-century Iran."—Setrag Manoukian, Institute of Islamic Studies and Department of Anthropology, McGill University
