Description

A definitive collection of essays and documents on the movement behind Iran's mass protests

Since June of 2009, the Islamic Republic of Iran has seen the most dramatic political upheaval in its three decades of rule. What began as a series of mass protests over the official results of a presidential election—engendering the slogan “Where is My Vote?”—has grown into something much larger, indeed the largest political protest since the 1979 revolution.

The Green Movement has been described as “an Iranian intifada,” a “great emancipatory event,” a “grassroots civil rights movement a century in the making,” and “something quite extraordinary, perhaps even a social revolution.” What are the movement’s aims—are they revolutionary, reformist, or something else altogether? Does it have a chance of fundamentally changing Iranian politics or removing president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from office?

This momentous anthology explores these critical questions and others by assembling the key statements, communiqués, manifestos, interviews, and debates to have emerged from this vibrant social movement—many of which are translated and published here for the first time. This indispensable volume is the first to bring together the leading voices and key players in Iran’s Green Movement, providing an intellectual and political road map to this turning point in Iran’s history and a vital resource for the study of Iran, social movements, and the future of the Middle East.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jan 24, 2011 – Hashemi (Islam, Secularism, and Liberal Democracy) and Postel (Reading "Legitimation Crisis" in Tehran) offer a rich, consistently engaging anthology that makes an important effort to provide "an intellectual and political roadmap" to understanding Iran's tumultuous 2009 presidential election—the charges of vote rigging, the protests, and deadly government crack-down. Featuring essays and interviews by Iran experts, including Juan Cole, Reza Aslan, and Shirin Ebadi, the volume touches on protesters' motivations, the emergence of the Green Movement and its amorphous nature, and whether it can effect change—even as hard-liners maintain their firm grip on Iran's security, bureaucracy, and economy. The editors' choices lead to the unequivocal conclusion that the regime's domestic legitimacy now lies in tatters—and the facts, analysis, shading, and nuance these pieces provide will allow the reader to better understand whatever direction Iran may take in the future.
