Since June of 2009, the Islamic Republic of Iran has seen the most dramatic political upheaval in its three decades of rule. What began as a series of mass protests over the official results of a presidential election — engendering the slogan “Where is My Vote?” — has grown into the largest political protest since the 1979 revolution. The People Reloaded is a collection of essays and documents on the movement behind Iran’s mass protests. It brings together the leading voices and key players in Iran’s Green Movement, providing an intellectual and political road map to this turning point in Iran’s history and a vital resource for the study of Iran, social movements and the future of the Middle East. Nader Hashemi is an assistant professor in DU’s Korbel School of International Studies.
