This volume takes a look at the current social situation in Iran, examines clichés about a culture which—in the West at least—is often seen through eyes concerned only with fundamentalism, and provides a comprehensive survey of new and the very latest works by Iranian artists, film-makers, musicians and literary figures—both inside and outside the country.
With contributions by Rose Issa, Daryush Shayega, Tirdad Zolghadr, Shaheen Merali and others.
