Left in Iran, The 1905-1940

(Revolutionary History: Volume 10, Number 2)

Author(s): CHAQUERI, Cosroe
ISBN13/Barcode: 9780850366723
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
This volume looks back at the past events and at Iranian history. There are urgent questions to understand about the failure of the workers’ and socialist movement where opportunities seem to have appeared and to have been snuffed out at crucial times. It explains the reactionary role of British imperialism in this period and presents many relevant documents never available in English before.
Eschewing easy answers, it reviews critically the role of Lenin and Theodore Rothstein in subordinating Iranian working class interests to the interest of the Russian state. It also gives a new and real understanding of early Iranian Socialist and radical movements. It will be of great interest to all scholars and activists interested in Iran and the roots of the present crisis.

“a comprehensive range of crucial documents showing the foundation of left and socialist organisations in Iran in the wake of the Constitutional Revolution, and the early 1920s.” Counterfire
