A comprehensive, empirical study of Iranian political institutions and elites over the last four decades.

"As an exhaustive and systematically organized compilation of data and reliable information on the postrevolutionary Iranian political elites (including their social and regional origins, career paths, and ideological orientations, family ties, etc.), as well as chronologies of major events and detailed descriptive statistics on key state institutions, political parties, and elections at all levels, this pioneering work will serve not only as an indispensable standard reference for the study of Iranian politics, but also as an invaluable source of data and ideas for empirically based studies by scholars and students of Iran for years to come."—Ali Banuazizi, professor of political science, Boston College

"Boroujerdi and Rahimkhani have mapped out, with impressive rigor and erudition, the often inter-locking military, clerical, and political elite that has ruled Iran for the last thirty seven years. As much a book about Who Rules Iran as a Who’s Who in the halls of power in the Islamic Republic of Iran. An indispensable source for anyone studying modern Iranian society and politics."—Abbas Milani, Hamid and Christina Moghadam Director of Iranian Studies, Stanford University

"A monumental achievement. I am unaware of any other source that provides such a rich collection of political data about Iran. Western political scientists often complain about the lack of longitudinal data in order to apply modern analytical techniques to the politics of Third World countries. This compendium goes very far to respond to that need."—Gary Sick, Columbia University

"This product of 14 years of teamwork is an indispensable reference source for anyone with serious interest in contemporary Iran. . . . The work can justly be placed among the best elite studies done recently anywhere in the world."—Ervand Abrahamian, author of Iran between Two Revolutions
