Summary

This chapter serves as an introduction to the problem of invisible but evident liberal practices in modern Iran. It explains how hidden liberalism poses a challenge to prevailing historical and normative accounts of liberalism in Iranian studies and in political theory, and offers a conceptual framework for a more capacious understanding of modern liberalism in non-Western settings. This chapter also introduces the main themes of the book and lays out its central questions and claims with reference to the relevant scholarly literature.
