From Resilience to Revolution

This chapter investigates the process of state-building in modern Iran. Geopolitical substitution rooted in American intercessions after 1953 resulted in a narrowing coalitional logic that produced exclusionary economic and political institutions. From the White Revolution to political parties, new institutional investments signaled the ambitious vision of modernization espoused by the shah. However, such initiatives only further detached the Iranian state from its own society, which climaxed in the Iranian Revolution.
