Special Issue: Russian Orientalism to Soviet Iranology:The Persian-speaking world and its history through Russian eyes

Cronin, Stephanie  & Edmund Herzig (eds.). 2015. Iranian Studies 48(5).

This collection comprises a collective study of the genesis and development of Iranian Studies, or Iranology, in imperial Russia and subsequently in the Soviet Union. It takes as its specific point of departure the controversies regarding whether Russian, or post-1917 Soviet, scholars and administrators and the discourses they produced on the Persophone world were Orientalist in the sense made famous byEdward Said.
