Abstract

This thesis is a case study of the political economy of Iran from 1963 to the present. It analyzes the interactions of the political and economic spheres, and the effects of those interactions on political development within Iran. For Political development is viewed in terms of a system's capacity to respond to economic and political demands placed upon it by the population. Various theories of political economy are reviewed in the first chapter, and their applicability to Iran's system is discussed throughout the work. The interaction between existing economic and political systems in Iran, their transformation over time, and the resulting changes in the capacity of Iran's leadership to deliver economically and politically are the focus of this study. (Abstract shortened by UMI.).
