...................................
Medea Benjamin, one of Americas best-known and most effective activists,
co-founder of Code Pink and Global Exchange, is the author of Drone Warfare
and Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the U.SSaudi Connection. In 2012 she
was awarded the U.S. Peace Memorial Foundations Peace Prize, and in 2014
the Gandhi Peace Award.

Now Medea has written the first general-audience progressive  book on Irans history and politics, recounting Irans history from the pre-colonial period through the CIA-engineered coup that in 1953 overthrew the countrys democratic leadership, to its emergence as the only nation (other than Russia, of course) both Democrats and Republicans regularly denounce. Benjamin draws upon her firsthand experiences with Iranian politicians, activists and everyday citizens to provide a deeper understanding of the extraordinary complexities of Iranian society and the national role in the region.

In 1979 the Iranian Revolution brought a Shia theocracy to the 80 million inhabitants of the Middle Easts second largest country. In the decades since, bitter relations have persisted
between the U.S. and Iran. Yet how is it that Iran has become the primary target of American antagonism, when Saudi Arabia  a regime far more repressive  has become one of Americas closest allies?

Tackling the contradictions in Irans systEm of government, its religion, and its citizens way
of life, Inside Iran cuts sharply through the inflammatory rhetoric surrounding U.S.-Iranian
relations to present a realistic and hopeful case for the two nations fiuture.

To date, he has edited or coedited eight volumes of Censored andcontributed numerous chapters to these books.
