Workers in Iran -- pt. 2. Iran in the world.An insider's account of Iran's people, its politics, and the threat of invasion -- This is the first book to explore the changes taking in place in Iran from the ground up. While the world keeps its eyes riveted on Iran's nuclear programme, the Islamic Republic has gone through a crisis of its own. This book shows how soaring unemployment and poverty has given way to social protest. A new labour movement has come to the fore. Although strikes are banned, workers are beginning to organise and underground networks are challenging the rule of the mullahs from within.The authors offer a unique portrait of the social upheaval, why it is happening and where it may take the country. Following the fall of reformism, the rise of Ahmadinejad and the recent outbursts of ethnic violence, this book provides rare insights into the inner contradictions of the Islamic Republic. The second part of the book deals with the international issues facing Iran -- in particular the nuclear question, Iran's oil reserves and the serious threat of invasion. It is a sobering account of the realities of life in Iran, and the threat that war poses to the democratic aspirations of the Iranian people.Working classIranHistoryLabor unionsPolitical activityIranLabor movementPolitical activityIranIranPolitics and government1997-IranForeign relations1997-Electronic books.Working classHistory.Labor unionsPolitical activityLabor movementPolitical activity320.955Malm Andreas1977-839882Esmailian Shora957029MiAaPQMiAaPQMiAaPQBOOK9910458376003321Iran on the brink2167431UNINA
