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 dramaticpolitical 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 MyVote?--has grown into something much larger, indeed the largest political protest since the 1979 revolution.

The Green Movement has been described as an Iranianintifada, a great emancipatory event, a grassroots civil rights movement a century in the making, and something quite extraordinary, perhaps even asocial 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 removingpresident Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from office?

This momentous anthology explores these critical questions and others by assembling the key statements, communiques, manifestos, interviews, anddebates 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 keyplayers 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 futureof the Middle East.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
