Quick Overview

This volume of essays is a tribute to Nikki R. Keddie, professor emerita at UCLA, who in her forty-year career has authored and edited a number of important books and numerous articles in Iranian and Middle Eastern Studies. It contains essays by former graduate students and admiring colleagues on topics ranging from women and gender to education, literature, and politics, in Iran, the Ottoman Empire, and the Arab world. The articles cover a variety of issues yet stand together as a coherent whole. The themes of the book-"Intellectuals, Education, and the West," "Sexuality, Literature, and Culture," and "Islamists, Society, and Revolution"-do justice to the range and scope of Nikki Keddie's own scholarship. Iran and Beyond concentrates on various aspects of social and intellectual history, and the volume is thus a fitting homage to Keddie's work and a valuable contribution to the field.
