Medea Benjamin's book : Inside Iran -
The Real History and Politics of the Islamic State in Iran

In 1979, the Iranian Revolution brought a Shia theocracy to the 80 million

inhabitants of the Middle East’s second largest country. In the decades since,
bitter relations have persisted between the U.S. and Iran.

Yet how is it that
Iran has become the primary target of American antagonism, when Saudi Arabia, a
regime that is even more repressive, remains one of America’s closest allies?
In the first general-audience book on the subject, Medea Benjamin elucidates the
mystery behind this complex relationship, recounting Iran’s history from the
pre-colonial period, through the CIA-engineered coup that overthrew the
country’s democratic leadership in 1953, to its emergence as the one nation
Democrats and Republicans alike regularly unite in denouncing.

Benjamin draws
upon her firsthand experiences with Iranian politicians, activists, and everyday
citizens to provide a deeper understanding of the complexities of Iranian
society and the nation’s role in the region.

Tackling the contradictions in Iran’s system of government, its religiosity,

and its citizens’ way of life, Inside Iran makes short work of the
inflammatory rhetoric surrounding U.S.-Iranian relations, and presents a
realistic and hopeful case for the two nations’ future.
