"Iran is one of the world's oldest countries. Its history dates back almost 5,000 years and includes the days of the great Persian Empire. In Biblical times, Persian kings ruled a vast territory that included most of southwestern Asia and parts of Europe and Africa.
"Foreign powers have invaded and occupied Iran time and again during its long history. One of the most important invasions occurred in the mid-600's, when Muslim Arabs conquered the country. The Arab conquest had a lasting effect on Iranian culture. The Muslim caliphs (religious leaders) governed the country for about 200 years. During their rule, the Islamic faith spread throughout Iran. Today, the vast majority of Iranians are Muslims.
"In the early 1900's, the discovery of oil in southwestern Iran gave the country an enormous source of wealth. Reza Shah Pahlavi ruled Iran as shah (king) from 1925 to 1941. In 1941, his son, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, became shah. Both men used revenues from Iran's oil exports to modernize the country and promote economic and social development. In 1979, revolutionaries under Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, a Muslim religious leader, overthrew the regime of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and took control of Iran. The revolutionaries changed Iran's government from a constitutional monarchy to an Islamic republic. Their policies led to strict Islamic control over all areas of people's lives and resulted in severe economic problems for the nation and strained relations between Iran and Western countries.
"Government. After the 1979 revolution, Ayatollah Khomeini and his followers, who included many other religious leaders, drafted a Constitution for the new Islamic republic. The Constitution, which is closely based on the teachings of Islam, went into effect in December 1979." -- The World Book Encyclopedia, 1997, CD-Rom edition.
