Is Iran a pariah state, or simply a misunderstood nation, undergoing a program of modernization within its own traditions? Omid Souresrafil, an Iranian journalist living abroad, examines the current role of Iran in the international arena, and particularly within the Middle East. Written from an insider's perspective, "The Mature Revolution" demystifies the complicated political history of a country that has evolved from a totalitarian regime to a democratic state founded on the popular vote of its people.
Examining the political and social changes within Iranian society from a historical perspective, Souresrafil looks in detail at internal affairs since Mohammad Khatami's remarkable election in 1997, with its 20 million turnout. He also covers the political struggle between the traditionalists and the modernists, the role of the press, economic struggles, and Iran's prospects for the future. This is an insightful and informed narrative account of an Islamic transition to democracy
