"Anyone interested in Iran can only rejoice in the riches unearthed. Wright's reporting is comprehensive and meticulous. Her analysis offers an invaluable context for understanding the changes that seem imminent in Iran. An exceptional contribution to the understanding of a mysterious and maligned nation.” --The Washington Post
"Wright succeeds both in presenting a reasoned critique of a climatic 20th-century event and in making us sympathize with a people struggling to grasp the slippery reins of history...She brings considerable experience to the task. Readers of the Los Angeles Times and The New Yorker will be familiar with her insightful dispatches from Iran...Blending interviews, acute observation and informed analysis, Wright explores the changes wrought by two decades of revolution...The mosaic that emerges is convincing, both as an intimate portrait of Iranian society and an interpretation of Iran's experiment with Islamic governance."
