Amanat, Abbas:  
Pivot of the Universe : Nasir al-Din Shah Qajar and the Iranian Monarchy, 1831-1896

Publisher: London, I B Tauris Publishers, 1997. (1st Edition).
xxiv + 536pp with map, genealogical tables, and b/w illus. "When he was assassinated in 1896, Nasir al-Din Shah had sat on the Peacock Throne for nearly half a century. A colourful, complex figure, he is frequently portrayed as capricious and indulgent. Yet he was in many ways an effective ruler who displayed remarkable resilience during his long reign in the face of dilemmas and vulnerabilities shared by most monarchs of the Islamic world in the nineteenth century. In this book, the first in English about Nasir al-Din Shah, Abbas Amanat gives us both a biography of the man and an analysis of the institution of monarchy in modern Iran. Amanat poses a fundamental question : how did monarchy, the centrepiece of an ancient political order, withstand and adjust to the challneges of modern times, both at home and abroad ? Nasir al-Din Shah's life and career, his upbringing and personality, and his political conduct provide remarkable material for answering this question. By examining the way Nasir al-Din Shah was transformed from an insecure crown price and later an erratic boy-king in the 1840's and 50's into a ruler with substantial control over his government and foreign policy in the 1860's and beyond, Amanat explores a pattern in the consolidation of traditional monarchies as they accomodated themselves to the forces of modernity. Based on extensive archival research in both public and private collections, illustrated with drawings and photographs from the period, (this book) offers a fresh interpretation of the evolution of monarchy in modern times as it interacted with the institutions of government, the society at large, and Western powers. The social and cultural themes first evident in Nasir al-Din Shah's reign - especially Iran's position in the Islamic world and its encounter with Western powers - have shaped the course of Iranian history since his death."
