Title: Iran's Islamic Revolution: the Ulama, the West, nationalism, and the growth of political consciousness
Authors: Von Nordheim, Alex
Supervisors: Ansari, Ali M.

Abstract: This dissertation seeks to offer an explanation for the Islamic Revolution, taking into account not only the social, political, and economic conditions of the time, but also religious and cultural elements. It seeks to determine the origins of the trends it identifies as important to an understanding of the causes of the Islamic Revolution. These include the rise of nationalism, Iran’s exploitation by foreign powers, and the assertive posture of the Shi’a ulama.
