If one of the most important events of the 20th century has undoubtedly been the 1979 Islamic Revolution, an equally noteworthy role has been played by that set of cleavages and tensions that prepared the Persian society for the advent of the Khomeini movement. The aim of this essay is to analyze the rising hegemonic role the mullah built since the beginning of the century, that - by creating strong bonds with other major social groups - will eventually allow them to put themselves at the lead of the main revolutionary attempt the Iranian history went through.
