Iranian Media by Gholam Khiabany

Book Description

The post-revolutionary state in Iran has tried to amalgamate 'Sharia with electricity' and modernity with what it considers as 'Islam'. While sympathetic to private capital, through quasi anti-capitalist politics, the state began to restrict market-relations, confiscate major assets of sections of the Iranian bourgeoisie, and nationalize major aspects of Iran's industry, including its communications system. Since the end of war with Iraq and the start of the process of 'reconstruction', market-driven development and economic policies have been key aims of the state.

Blogistan by Gholam Khiabany Blogistan, Paperback (October 2010)

The protests unleashed by Iran's disputed presidential election in June 2009 brought the Islamic Republic's vigorous cyber culture to the world's attention. This title offers both a reading of Iranian politics and a conceptual framework for understanding the politics of the internet, with implications for the wider Middle East, China and beyond.
