We Are Iran

We Are IranWe Are Iran
by Nasrin Alavi

Portobello Books Ltd, 336 pp

This new book (published in 2005) by Iran-born and British-educated Nasrin Alavi (a pseudonym), and translated from the original Farsi, presents the views and musings of Iran's estimated 60,000 plus web bloggers. Topics range from the private thoughts of women behind the veil, the media, music and dancing, romance and living with the religious authorities. Blogs have exploded in Iran since 2001 when Hossein Derakhshan, a young Iranian journalist, created what was then Iran's first blog.

If you want to raise yours voice against the oppressive politics of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, you can use an imminent blogroll: you have to write a comment here with the link of your blog. I can assure you a lot of italian bloggers will publish this instrument of freedom. I'm waiting for you!

All but one of the blog sites mentioned in this post are inaccessible from within Iran due presumably to government censorship.
