Staging a revolution: the art of persuasion in the Islamic Republic of Iran
Staging a Revolution examines the orchestration of public myths and collective symbols in the making of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. From banners and songs, to bank notes and chewing-gum wrappers, the book depicts the words and images that geared the Iranian people towards mass mobilization for revolution and war. With essays by experts from New York University and Columbia University, the book examines previously unpublished sources in relation to Iranian history and religion. From the fiery speeches of Ayatollah Khomeini to graffiti, slogans and murals, the visual and iconographic history of the Islamic Revolution, little known to the West, is uncovered. The first book to examine this colossal political event through the images that set it in motion, Staging a Revolution tells the story from the inside -- revelatory and unfiltered history at its best.
