Iran From Theocracy to the Green Movement (Paperback)
From the Publisher:
Recent Iranian history has been full of unexpected turns. Whether it was the 1979 revolution which resulted in the establishment of the first ever Islamic Republic in the history of the Muslim world, the rise to power of the reformist movement in 1997, or the emergence of the Green Movement, an opposition movement that took shape spontaneously in the days immediately following the presidential elections in June 2009, the world was taken unawares at every juncture. This book brings together essays that both speculate on the import of the developments of 2009 and alsoshed light on the complexities and the ever-changing dynamics of post-revolutionary Iran.
