This article “Finding a Path to a Post-revolutionary Iran” is a comprehensive piece that will take you through the history of the country from the abdication of the Shah in 1979 to the present. It also focuses on (and presents some excellent graphs on) Iran’s political structure and its political factions. In light of the current nuclear agreement with Iran and our possible withdrawal from that arrangement, this is a good background piece.
