Acerca de


"Vejdani's book is rich in primary and secondary sources, and includes a wide range of published and unpublished material such as journals, year-books, school curricula, pedagogical manuals, letters, memoirs, and more, mostly in English and Persian. This richness in sources ... has produced a major and most valuable contribution, not only to the field of Iranian historiography, but also to the study of the history, nationalism, and education of modern Iran." -- Soli Shahvar * Canadian Journal of History * "An illuminating contribution that beautifully captures the process by which the rich cultural world of gunpowder empire was ushered out by the historicist pedagogy of the modern nation state in Iran. A must-read for those interested in understanding how the European concept of the past shaped the self-image of colonized societies." -- Yoav Di-Capua * The University of Texas at Austin * "Well researched and convincingly argued, Making History in Iran represents a major contribution to the study of Iranian historiography and a valuable addition to the growing literature on the subject of Iranian nationalism." -- David N. Yaghoubian * American Historical Review * "Making History in Iran is a rich study based on primary sources that makes important contributions to Iranian historiography by situating it within a broad comparative analytical framework informed by recent studies in European, Islamic, and Middle Eastern history." -- Jasamin Rostam-Kolayi * Journal of Interdisciplinary History * "In Making History in Iran, Farzin Vejdani pays a long overdue debt owed by academics studying Iran to the historians of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, men and women who wrote history, composed textbooks, and trained teachers . . . Vejdani deftly describes the story of the writers who made Iran's history appear unique." -- Behrooz Moazami * Comparative Studies in Society and History * "Making History in Iran is a much-needed examination of how various social and institutional changes during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries shaped how the people of Iran wrote about, taught, and understood the past...Making History in Iran successfully stresses continuity over rupture in the development of historiographical genres, state patronage, and the formation of reading publics. It improves our understanding of how Iranian historiography represented Arab and Islamic historical figures and drew upon Arabic- language secondary sources" -- Rustin Zarkar * Arab Studies Journal * "[T]his is a strong, insightful contribution that sheds light on the agency of a broad segment of Iranian society in the making of modern Iran. Due to the comparative framework Vejdani employs throughout the book, this text would be useful not only to those interested in nationalism and historiography in Iran but also to students of these subjects in other geographic contexts. Vejdani's use of accessible language to discuss complex ideas also makes the book appropriate for advanced undergraduate courses." -- Mikiya Koyagi * International Journal of Middle East Studies * "Farzin Vejdani has written a well-argued, finely researched book about a topic of great interest: how the modern age broadened the range of people writing history, how modes of writing and reading history shifted, and how complex the process of modern nationalization of Iranian history really was. A serious contribution to the study of historiography in general and of Middle Eastern history in particular." -- Cyrus Schayegh * Princeton University * "This excellent study examines the evolution of Iranian self-identification- how Iranians went from viewing themselves as subjects of a shah to feeling like citizens of a nation . . . One of this study's many virtues is that it looks at Iranian agency from a comparative perspective. It argues that, unlike India, whose historians had to reclaim a past handed to them by their colonizers, and unlike Turkey with its rigidly secular etatist model imposed by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Iran's history writing did not take place in a binary mode . . . Perceptive, informative and well-written, this study vies for first place among a spate of recent books on Iranian identity formation and nation-building." -- Rudi Matthee * The Middle East Journal *
