Abstract

This research seeks to further the knowledge of the United States – Iran international relations through comprehensive analysis. With the advent of modern political institutions begun during the Constitutional Revolution and the country’s revitalization under the modernization and nationalism proposed by Reza Shah, the people of Iran, particularly the elite among them, began to grasp an understanding of the potential, objectives, and capabilities of their country. Both events were inspired by fundamental aspirations of the people. The spark of the 1979 Islamic Revolution was also a unifying development for a people yearning to utilize the right of self-determination. With a population gradually taking interest in its own future and responsibility for its own initiatives, the faint beginnings of citizenship seemed to have developed in Iran. From servitude to open revolution, history has witnessed, in essence, the emergence of state with respect to Iran. In this research, I am investigating and presenting information on the internal politics of Iran, analyzing and commenting on the organization of the government of Iran, critically examining the historical scholarship on the affairs of state between the United States and Iran, and investigating the current state of affairs and prospects for the future. My research focuses on background information and the distinctive set of circumstances that lead to the establishment of an Islamic government in Iran, and it will subsequently address the structure of the current government. It is my intention to express an understanding of the Iranian situation by the means of an analysis of the past.
