Understanding Iran

Iran: Axis of Culture, History, and Geopolitics

Good back ground reading on Iran, including:
- how we (the West) helped create both the oppressive conditions that bred the Islamic revolution and the victory its most reactionary expression, Khomeini.
- a glimpse of an alternative course of history if we hadn’t helped oust Muhammad Mossadeq.
- glimpses of an emerging democratic current in Iran.
