Summary
"Robin Wright returns to Iran to give us a portrait of the revolution - a generation after Ayatollah Khomeini returned from exile to end 2,500 years of monarchy." "She shows us how the Iranian revolution has taken on even greater importance since Khomeini's death, and how it has transformed Iranian society as well as Islam. She describes the revolutions within the revolution that have resulted in a movement as radical in the world of Islam as Luther's Reformation was in the Christian world - empowering women, modernizing social traditions, creating a feisty, independent cinema and arts industry and giving birth to a new generation that is redefining Iran's political agenda."--BOOK JACKET
