Iranian politics is repressive on the one hand and competitive and participatory on the other, as the june 2005 poll showed. While young people face harassment by the morality police, they can embrace the latest in music and fashion. The civic institutions are feeble, yet personal, professional, religious and political networks engender a lively society.
Dilip Hiro, who has been writing on Iran for the past quarter-century, illuminates the Iranian kalaidoscope with his customary lucidity and even-handedness. He focuses on key institutions and offers revealing profiles of recent Iranian leaders, royal and clerical. In the process Hiro provides an enlightening background to the ongoing tensions between Iranean conservatives and reformers, and between Iran and the West on the nuclear issue.
