Revolutionary Ride : On the Road in Search of the Real Iran, Paperback

Revolutionary Ride : On the Road in Search of the Real Iran Paperback

Part of the Millennium Series series


When tensions between Iran and the West were at an all-time high, Lois Pryce found a note left on her motorbike from a man named Habib, imploring its owner to visit his hometown of Shiraz to find out what Iranian people were really like.

Intrigued, Lois ignored the warnings and embarked on a 3,000-mile journey across Iran to Shiraz, resting place of Iran's most beloved poet, Hafez, and Iran's counter-cultural and artistic heart.

She finds people on the cusp of great change, with a strong sense of self and determined to enjoy themselves despite the fierce dictates imposed by the government.

Lois Pryce explores Iran's past and how it has shaped its present and how the West's relations with Iran have created an image of the country wildly out of step with the reality.

Religious yet hedonistic, practical yet poetic, modern yet rooted in tradition: here is real contemporary Iran.
