Andrea Claudia  Hoffmann - Iran


An insider's view of an ancient culture

Thirty years after the Islamic Revolution, Iran has once again been thrust into the full glare of
worldwide publicity. Branded as a "rogue nation" by the US, this multi-faceted country with its
great history and tradition could soon become a war zone. Journalist Andrea Claudia Hoffmann
has access to the most influential Ayatollahs and politicians, as well as being in close contact with
members of the opposition and critics of the regime. Her book is a brilliantly written exploration of
the history and present-day reality of a culture that goes back 5000 years. She looks behind the veil of prejudice and clichés that to a large extent determine Iran’s image in the West.
