Description
 
John Simpson (au); Tira Shubart (au). Since the days of the revolution against the Shah, Simpson &  Shubart know the reality of life in Iran better than almost any other Westerners. Here, they examine how ordinary people in mid-1990s Iran live their lives. How women cope with the restrictions fundamentalist Islamic laws place on them. How the young manage to enjoy themselves. How the rules which Ayatollah Khomeini laid down are being ignored by the more pragmatic politicians, & how the hard-liners undermine any effort to create a better relationship with the West. They interviewed hundreds of Iranians: merchants, religious idealists, teenagers, as well as mullahs, soldiers, dissidents, & Westerners who love the country so much they never consider leaving it.
