Medea Benjamin Book Talk: Inside Iran

When: Friday, June 08 2018 @ 07:00 PM - - 09:00PM
Where: St. Paul's United Methodist Church
405 S. 10th St.
San Jose, CA
Description: In her new book, "Inside Iran: The Real History of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Medea Benjamin examines the question-- how is it that Iran has become the primary target of American antagonism, when Saudi Arabia, a regime that is even more repressive, remains one of Americaís closest allies?

In the first general-audience book on the subject, Medea Benjamin elucidates the mystery behind this complex relationship, recounting Iranís history from the pre-colonial period, through the CIA-engineered coup that overthrew the countryís democratic leadership in 1953, to its emergence as the one nation Democrats and Republicans alike regularly unite in denouncing.

Benjamin draws upon her firsthand experiences with Iranian politicians, activists, and everyday citizens to provide a deeper understanding of the complexities of Iranian society and the nationís role in the region.
