The Ayatollahs' Democracy : An Iranian Challenge Paperback / softback


Iran is a country with global ambitions, an elaborate political culture, and enormous implications for world peace.

How will its diversity of political positions resolve itself?

Drawing on privileged access to Iranian society, Hooman Majd has spoken to ayatollahs, politicians and ordinary people to show that, despite the violence of the 2009 elections, the ideal of an Iranian republic is still alive.

A personal, candid tour of the political landscape, The Ayatollahs' Democracy is a powerful dispatch from a country at a historic turning point.
