"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Editorial Reviews


"In a highly original book, Negar Mottahedeh offers a fresh perspective on the role of social media in the 2009 protest movement in Iran. Moving beyond clichéd analysis, Mottahedeh offers a nuanced mapping of the ways social media was integrated into the lived experiences of Iranian political life. In tracing the organic development of the Green Movement, the book provides glimpses into the ways Iran's history continues to color political memory and animate social movements." (Shiva Balaghi Brown University)

"Elegant, passionate, and deeply committed, #iranelection brings a much-needed historical perspective and non-Western viewpoint to the vexed question of the interactions of social media and social change. If you care about the history of the present, you need to read this book." (Nicholas Mirzoeff New York University)

"Negar Mattahedeh's #iranelection offers a gripping chronicle of human solidarity in the age of social media. Analyzing Iran's 'green wave' in 2009 as at once an online and on-the-ground event, she connects it with earlier media revolutions, from Algeria's radio-fuelled revolution against French colonial rule to the cassettes and phone calls of the 1979 Iranian revolution. In Mottahedeh's inspiring account, the people pick up where the state and official media institutions fail." (Jonathan Sterne author of MP3: The Meaning of a Format)
