After Khomeini
 For Iran the years since Ayatollah Khomeini’s death have been dominatedby the need for political consolidation and economic reconstruction.The book assesses the critical dilemmas of the regime both previous toand since the demise of its first spiritual leader. The vital issues of politicalsuccession and constitutional reform are addressed, contributing to an analysisof the structures and politics of power. How these have reflected uponeconomic policy is considered, with close attention being given to the reformpolicies of Rafsanjani. Foreign policy and security issues are discussed inboth regional and global terms and include a study of Iranian defence strategyand its controversial rearmament drive.At the heart of this study is the belief that the Islamic regime has, sincethe cease-fire with Iraq, but more specifically since Ayatollah Khomeini’sdeath, passed into a new stage of development, referred to in the book as the‘Second Republic’. Students of this vitally important Middle Eastern statewill find the book an invaluable guide to its changing internal political sceneand its role in the region.
