The Iranian Revolution and the factors in its success.
On the Path of Revolution enhances the reader's understanding about the risk revolutionaries
take when embarking on efforts to overthrow a leader or change a system of government. In
the Iranian revolution, little clear knowledge is available because there have been conflicting
opinions and publications on the factual history. The well-described developments, methods
and actions of other revolutionary movements have resulted in a spread of their ideas even
beyond their own borders. This can be seen in the following:
The French Revolution led to a renaissance around the world.
The Bolshevik Revolution in Russia advanced Marx's and Engels's communism theory
The anti-imperialist challenges within India and the US stimulated a desire for freedom
After an in-depth look at the history of several failed Iranian movements after the two centuries
of the Islamic regime in Iran, resulted from Arab's occupation, On the Path of Revolution then
outlines what steps led to the successful of the long lasting monarchy. The author has spent
decades as a keen observer of these events. Given his position within the government at the
time of revolution, he is able to provide a truly unique perspective. However, his extensive
research is what guides the details of the book, not aligning with any particular political party,
group or organization. The result is a moving story of the rise of the Iranian movement and the
related factors of its success.
