Reviews

"Iran Reframed offers marvelously original insight into one of the world's most misunderstood countries. Narges Bajoghli reflects on the success and failure of revolutions, the meaning of ideology, youth and aging, and the ways politics seeks to address deep human longings."--Stephen Kinzer "author of All the Shah's Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror "
"In this beautifully written and extraordinarily rich book, Narges Bajoghli demonstrates a deep anxiety within the Iranian regime about how to transmit the ideology of the Revolution forty years on. With Iran Reframed, we come to understand the contradictions and frustrations behind the regime's justifications of its past, present, and imagined future."--Sherine F. Hamdy "author of Our Bodies Belong to God: Organ Transplants, Islam, and the Struggle for Human Dignity in Egypt "
"Iran Reframed is incomparable. A must-read on Iran's media landscape and paramount for anyone who wants to understand Iran as it really is. Gripping and provocative."--Negar Mottahedeh "author of Whisper Tapes: Kate Millett in Iran "
