Adding to an important and growing body of literature that discusses the profound and lasting impact of colonialism, Iran and Global Decolonisation contributes to the historical and theoretical debates around the reshaping of the world brought about by the end of empire. It considers the influence of global decolonisation on ideas within Iran and assesses how Iran’s unique experiences of imperialism shaped these ideas. In this way, this volume contributes to the historiography of the Iranian Revolution and its anti- imperialist impulses.
