Marking the 30th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution

Monday, February 02, 2009

This month Iran is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution. The revolution signified a profound paradigm shift: transitioning its monarchy to an Islamic Republic. Three decades on it remains one of the most turbulent and profound moments in the history of the modern Middle East. For a look at how the aftermath of the revolution is still shaping Iranian society, we are joined by Darius Rejali, the chair of the political science department at Reed College and the author of Torture and Democracy.
