    ePUB Hooman Majd ☆ Ayatollah's Democracy PDF/EPUB À ☆ ayatollah's ebok, democracy book, Ayatollah's Democracy PDFEPUBWhile this book moves through time according to perhaps the author's whim there is a lot here that the lay reader would not have access to in any other way Hooman Majd is an Iranian American bi lingual and connected to key players in Iranian politics He de mystifies Iran and presents it in a way that enables outsiders to understand its people and leadersHis earlier book The Ayatollah Begs to Differ The Paradox of Modern Iran draws a social portrait of Iran This new book is a political portrait Majd reveals about himself than he does in the previous volume In his youth as the child of a diplomat for the Sha

    ePUB Hooman Majd ☆ Ayatollah's Democracy PDF/EPUB À ☆ ayatollah's ebok, democracy book, Ayatollah's Democracy PDFEPUBPerhaps in 2009 you remember cheering for the Greens hoping for global peace with the vibrant youth of Iran A deeply connected sympathetic and neutral journalist tries to document the facts which is useful for international understanding but also for history Majd naturally is Fluent in Farsi and knows some of the key individuals personally Perhaps without burning his bridges he writes with a harsh honesty in the tradition of the late Rafsanjani who believed that honest appraisal was a key attribute of islamic democracy He often includes important language lessons such as “death to” has never meant anything than disapproval and can be said to themselves on a bad day or to inanimate objects p164In short Iran is stunted f

    ePUB Hooman Majd ☆ Ayatollah's Democracy PDF/EPUB À ☆ ayatollah's ebok, democracy book, Ayatollah's Democracy PDFEPUBI was excited for Majd's second book as I found his first The Ayatollah Begs To Differ incredibly insightful and informative While The Ayatollah's Democracy does offer glimpses into the Persian psyche that would otherwise be hidden from Westerns I was somewhat disappointed in this book The first half of the book is uite chaotic jumping from various settings before and after the controversia

    ePUB Hooman Majd ☆ Ayatollah's Democracy PDF/EPUB À ☆ ayatollah's ebok, democracy book, Ayatollah's Democracy PDFEPUBUndoubtedly an excellent study of the currents of Iranian politics as they came to a head in 2009 I'm a little skeptical of Majd's insistence that ta'arouf explains much of the misunderstanding between the Islamic Republic and the United States but the point is interesting all the same The author's principal reliance on his cousin Khatami as a source is both a valuable asset and potentially a liability so I wouldn't read this book in a vacuum All the same very well written; the section on Judaism in Tehran is particularly enlightening

    ePUB Hooman Majd ☆ Ayatollah's Democracy PDF/EPUB À ☆ ayatollah's ebok, democracy book, Ayatollah's Democracy PDFEPUBNot as poignant or prolific as his first book but still an interesting read on Iran's version of democracy from a very well informed and meticulously researched perspective I like that Majd has the uniue perspective of having been born in Iran raised in the US worked and lived in Iran for many years including for the former president and is still a translator for the administration He really does have a uniue poi

    ePUB Hooman Majd ☆ Ayatollah's Democracy PDF/EPUB À ☆ ayatollah's ebok, democracy book, Ayatollah's Democracy PDFEPUBSo poorly written obviously it's just a bunch of writing haphazardly thrown together as no doubt you'll find in the first chapters At the same time it brought up perspectives and brought light to the complexity of the Iranian system I definitely need to read about Iran what an interesting country and people I haven't yet found a good book on the politics of Iran so until I do I suppose I have to work my way through books like this to get the understanding I want

    ePUB Hooman Majd ☆ Ayatollah's Democracy PDF/EPUB À ☆ ayatollah's ebok, democracy book, Ayatollah's Democracy PDFEPUBFairly interesting ruminations on the current state of Iranian politics Majd is obsessed with the alleged unpopularity of president Ahmadinejad which seems confined to his own elite set and is otherwise engrossed in interviews he's had with various opinion leaders on subjects ranging from the controversial 2009 election to Jews in Iran
