Book: Chronicles from Iran by Albertine Ahmadicategories: Book, Non-Fiction, Middle-East, Society, Politics, History, Arab Spring, Iran
Albertine Ahmadiabout this book: The Republic Islamic of Iran is a dictatorship that sooner or later will fall. However, in the shadow of 'Arab Spring', the book targets the lack of democracy and freedom in Iran– challenging conventionalities of an Islamic society.
Iranian politics and nuclear issues in international relations fill media. However we know less about the Iranian people and their aspiration. This book is intended for those who want to learn more and beyond received wisdom on the complex Iranian issues. Simply written, it is relates everyday life in a dictatorship.
Democracy is more complex than just having institutions . It is more about solidarity and sharing the burden of responsibilities in a free society. Democracy is a matter of concern to everyone. The book cover is a screen-shot of filters used earlier to block access of internet users to the net by Iranian censorship. It says "access to this site denied".
It is going to change … Even if while Islamist cliques make the most of religion to consolidate their tyrannical power, the greedy sets of Westerners pervert democracy, breeding only liberalism, technology and political correctness.
