lethe | 13731 comments The title translates as "Results of the Iranian Revolution". Do you know what is the original title of the Persian book?

Yasser Kazemi (kazemi7) | 6 comments The original title is "Results of the Iranian Revolution" and the title on this translation is "نتایج انقلاب ایران".
they combined it with "Roots of Revolution" which is not the same book. both by Nikki Keddie.

lethe | 13731 comments So it is not a translation of this book? https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

I don't see any book entitled Results of the Iranian Revolution in the author's list. Seems strange that that book would not be in Goodreads.

Roots of Revolution is another book. It does seem as if some of the translations belong under that title instead, but not the Persian one.

Or maybe they should all be combined even though the later edition is "revised and vastly expanded".

lethe | 13731 comments According to Worldcat, the original title is Modern Iran, so it is combined correctly: http://www.worldcat.org/title/natajeg...

Yasser Kazemi (kazemi7) | 6 comments "Modern Iran: Roots and Results of Revolution" is updated edition of Nikki Keddie’s Modern Iran—itself a substantially revised and expanded version of her classic work Roots of Revolution.
But the Persian translation of second book is just the extended part of the book (in 176 page) so there is two separated book in Persian.
you're right, but when I'm done reading the translated "Modern Iran: Roots and Results of Revolution" doesn't mean I read "Roots of Revolution".
I don't know what is the policy on this kind of edition in Goodreads.

According to the description, "Roots and Results of Revolution" is the subtitle of "Modern Iran". It is an updated version of "Roots of Revolution". There are no two different books entitled "Modern Iran".

If the Persian translation is in two parts, it should indeed be separated from the main work.

The combine/separate function is off at the moment, but when it works again (should be in a couple of days), I will separate the Persian edition and also look at the other translations to see if they are incorrectly combined.

lethe | 13731 comments I separated the edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1....


message 10: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13731 comments According to Worldcat, these two Persian editions should be listed under Roots of Revolution instead of Modern Iran:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... (this one has an incorrect publication date)

Do you agree?

I went ahead and combined them with Roots of Revolution:
