The aim of this chapter is to set out where the main debates lie on the origins, development, and consequences of Iran’s transition from status quo orientated monarchical authoritarianism to revolutionary Islamic Republic. The broad structure of the analysis is to first examine the international and structural causes of regime change. The second part will analyze the role of social movements and other domestic and ideational factors, including the unique role of violence, protest, and cultural symbols. The final section will discuss the international consequences of the revolution and also analyze some of the key political, economic, and social changes it brought about in Iran.
