THE PERSIAN NIGHT Iran under the Khomeinist Revolution

by | Read by Robertson Dean

Contemporary Culture • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

At first listen, Robertson Dean may seem a surprising choice for this overview of Iranian religious politics, given his precise and clearly American accent. But given that the audience for this complicated text is largely non-Muslim and Western, Dean's sophisticated and well-enunciated narration provides a soothing background for the tense issues covered. These include the American hostage situation in Iran in the 1980s and the continual threat of a future conflict between the two nations. Dean covers the suspicious relationship between these two nations in a professional and objective tone. The intricacies of religious interpretation as well as the controversial statements of Iranian President Ahmadinejad make for a compelling read.
