Beside the highway that leads south from Tehran, the necropolis of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini rises from the tarmac like a miraculous filling station supplying fuel for the soul. However, the paint is peeling even before the complex has been completed, & the prayer halls are all but deserted. Iran’s Islamic Revolution is out of gas, but what has happened to the hostage takers, suicidal holy warriors, & ideologues who brought it about? These men & women kicked out the Shah, spent 8 years fighting Saddam’s Iraq, & terrified the West with its militancy & courage. Now they are a worn-out generation. This thoughtful book gives us the voices & memories of these wistful revolutionaries. “A subtly intense revelation of the hearts & minds of the Iranian people.”
