Abstract:

'Between Iran and Zion' analyzes the responses of Iranian Jews to the social, political, and cultural developments of the twentieth century. The text examines their integration into the nation-building projects of the 20th century (by the first and second Pahlavi monarchs, and then by the postrevolutionary Islamic Republic); it analyzes their various reactions to Zionism from the early 20th century, through the state years, and until the end of that period; and it analyzes the social and cultural transformations this community underwent in a relatively short period of time, growing from marginal and peripheral community into a prominent and visible one.
