From the Back Cover

One of the more surprising demographic facts about Iran is the fact that 70% of the population is under 30 years of age. This simple statistic has molded Iran into an increasingly more modern society with a thriving and unpredictable "student population." This population, who is often referred to as "Iranian youth", has been strongly linked to the generation of reformist ideas surfacing in Iran.

At 7:30 a.m. in Tehran the coercion of the "security forces" against the opposition had already escalated a point that was considered to be the most aggressive since the Presidential election. The Iranian civilians woke up to scenes in the street only fit for a movie. A city bus had been set on fire in the night and the smoldering wreckage only further illustrated the devastation that this country was experiencing. What seemed to be chaos at this point was only a small glimpse of the near future of the Iranian people. The citizens of Iran should brace themselves for the likelihood of more bloody altercations between the security forces and protesters on the streets of Tehran.

By 10:25 a.m., the Iranian state television reported that 10 people were killed as the police and protesters clashed in the streets of Tehran in lieu of the protester's defiance to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Reports said there were at least another 100 protesters severely injured during the clashing.

More demonstrators took to the streets of Tehran during the afternoon. Women, youth, students and members of the moderate clerical establishment took to the streets in the thousands chanting and wearing the bright green campaign colors of Moussavi and showing support for the "Green Movement".

I'm kind of split in my evaluation of Slater Bakhtavar's book. If you disagree, just leave a comment, instead of giving me lots of "unhelpful" clicks.

On one hand it's a quick-reading account of the 2009 Iranian Presidential election that Ahmadinejad almost for certain stole. On the other hand, the book lacks perspective, analysis, and synthesis. Additionally, the book was written by someone who was personally caught up in the events, so any sense of objectivity is lost. Not that I think that the author or Mousavi or the reform movement is on the wrong side of history, quite the contrary, it just that in gathering facts and forming opinions, it is always important to get the full picture.

Having gotten the above out of the way, I do think that his book will be useful for future readers and historians to understand the reform movement in Iran. Bakhtavar clearly presents many day to day details that will make understanding Iran easier for future historians, many details that may not be so easily documented and otherwise lost to future historians.

Lastly, keep in mind that the book came out just a few months after the election.

Outstanding chronology of the Green Movement in Iran. It is as if the author gathered NY Times articles and Twitter updates, weeded out the most relevant and compelling detail, organized the data by the date, and compiled it into a book. The book is concise and thorough account of the Green Revolution, and ultimately the Green Movement, in Iran under Ahmadinejad.

I am upset that the book and author did not receive the attention that it deserves. I think it is a mix of an unknown author and a bad publishing house. The cover art looks outdated and ugly and there are some editing issues. It doesn't read as a NYTimes Best Seller, but it is definitely a staple in understanding modern Iran and the undercurrents of the Green Movement. Highly recommended for those interested in Iran.

I have to agree that the book brings out the core of Iran that is its youth. For any reforms the young generation is very important and Iran is leading towards development and progress with the support of its youth.

In the past few years, history might record that it is the people of Iran, the citizens, who struggled the most at the beginning of this 21st century. I read quite a bit on the region and Iran: The Green Movement is perhaps the BEST and most detailed account of that struggle to date. Written by a native from Iran, The Green Movement describes the raging political war that followed the anything-by-democratic election of 2009, a major turning point in modern-day history of the country. The biggest insight you will get here is the look at how the people of Iran's past 2 decades - not the leadership but the ordinary citizens - differ from their historic and even their 1970s and 1980s counterparts. Plus, Iran: The Green Movement offers insight into what the future holds. Extremely eye-opening!

Slater Bakhtavar's documentation of Irans "Green Movement" is a wonderful description of the Iranian peoples desire to become a democratic society in the face of a corrupt and violent goverment that will stop at nothing to prevent the people from getting what they want.

The book takes you step by step and day by day through the many demonstrations, and attempts by the Iranian people to change the country they love and explains how the government using everything at their disposal to stop them from getting the word out to the world. Many innocent people, only looking for a better way of life have been beaten, jailed, and even murdered for speaking out against the current government.

This is a book that needs to read by the masses so that a better understanding of the current situation in Iran is made public worldwide, and perhaps someday soon the Green Movement will achieve their goal.

Just how the author managed to get hold of all the facts from within is in itself an amazing feat. Some of the reading can be disturbing but chillingly accurate and will have you and your emotions at a high level throughout.
You have to feel for the Iranian movement for change by the time you have read this. I know I did. You will feel for the people and hope that one day all despots have their day, like Gadaffi and Hussein have succumb to. This is a great book but I bought the kindle version and it was only 99 cents! That in itself was worth every cent!

For the first time, we get an inside look at what really happened in Iran that brought Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power. The author, Slater Bakhtaver, gives details about the emotion of the times and how hopes for a new future in Iran were dashed by what was a fixed election. The fallout of this election can still be seen today in the policies and politics of Iran today. Interesting insight from the Iranian mind of the author.

The Book Iran: 'The Green Movement' by Slater Bakhtavar is very cheerful with the ideas of freedom fighters. It explains the atrocities done by the rulers and the sufferings of the citizens.
Actually it is a green Movement to the country. The front cover explains the victory symbol with scattered blood and the gathering of the people.
