A comparative study of agricultural policies in pre-and post-revolutionary Iran.


Ali Shakoori told CA: "When I began to study for my master's degree in sociology, I was interested in such issues as poverty, development, and rural poverty and development, particularly in third-world countries. The underdevelopment of these countries, particularly Iran, which had a considerable capacity for development, became my preoccupation. Then, when I started my doctoral work at the University of York, I chose to research rural development and problems of the state in Iran after the victory of the revolution in 1979. When I completed my thesis and submitted it, and defended it successfully, Professors Haleh Afshar and Adrian Leftwich recommended and encouraged me to publish it."

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
