Kasra Naji's Book about the Iranian President



There is an urgent need for an unbiased and more detailed analysis of the origins of this son of a blacksmith from Aradan.

Paralyzing, even nullifying, the already initiated little progress under former ‘reformist’ President Seyyed Mohammad Khatami.

Who is this man who has almost become a hero, even a kind of pop star, of the underdogs in Muslim societies; those (incredibly poor) who are sitting beneath the table of the rich? And those who are related in one or the other way to what has been called by George W. Bush as the axis of evil? Read the rest of this book review »
