Review º Iran Awakening A Memoir of Revolution and Hope 107 Summary ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Shirin Ebadi Her way back as a human rights lawyer defending women and children in politically charged cases that most lawyers were afraid to represent She has been arrested and been the target of assassination but through it all has spoken out with uiet bravery on behalf of the victims of injustice and discrimination and become a powerful voice for change almost universally embraced as a hero Her memoir is a gripping story a must read for anyone interested in Zara Kazemi's case in the life of a remarkable woman or in understandingthe political and religious upheaval in our worl. To be clear my rating is based purely on the enjoymententertainment factor I think Shirin Ebadi has an amazing life story and I m so glad she shared it I did feel as though she was keeping a lot of things back not going into much detail I understand that her work is dangerous and maybe she feared repurcussions from the Iranian government but perhaps it could have been better glossed over It s hard to explain I admit she said some things that made me suirm but that s a good sign I did however take pause to something she said about America s previous ban on books from sanctioned countries It seemed incomprehensible to me that the US government the self proclaimed protector of a free way of life would seek to regulate what Americans oculd or could not read a pratcie that is called censorship when enacted by authoritarian regimes pg 211 I will acknolwedge that as an American I m biased but I don t think that s censorship especially since the US is not censoring its CITIZENS I am glad the ban was lifted though I don t think sanctions should apply to books from the particular countryI also think Ms Ebadi is rather harsh she refuses to contact her friend who left Iran She looks down on them and to me that s both arrogant and frustrating If someone is truly your friend you will try and make the friendship work And I don t think people are abandoning their country when conditions become untolerable Ms Ebadi says When someone leaves Iran it s as though that person has died to me We re friends so long as we share the same world for as long as the same hopes illuminate our lives the same anxieties keep us awake at night Years later when my friends traveled back to Iran for short visits I saw how right I had been We still spoke Farsi the same blood still ran through our veins but they were living on a different planet than I was You could find the words we exchanged in the same Persian dictionary but it was as though we spoke diferent languages In reality I had lost my friends pg 81 She stopped writing them letters because she considered them dead to her to me that s a sign of a narrow minded person and not a particularly good friendI did appreciate Ms Ebadi s hoensty She supported the Islamic Revolution and who can blame her The shah was a dictator who tried to do some good things but the awful things under his regime like the SAVAK will forever overshadow his hopes of modernizing IranThe most revealing uote to me was the following Unfortunately Iranians are at heart hero worshippers Whether it is the Rostam of our ancient epic poem the Shahnameh The Book of Kings or Iman Hossein the martyr saint of Shiism they cling to the notion that one lofty iconicc figure can sweep through their lives slay their enemies and turn their world around Perhaps other cultures also believe in heroes but Iranians do so with a uniue devotion Not only do they fall in love with heroes but they are in love with their love for them pg 147 I was starting to slowly observe the same thing from the few books I had read on Iran I don t want to be so presumptios to say they are in love with their love for heroes but I do think they seem to place all their eggs in one basket so to speak But I m still learning about Iran but it s a country that truly fascinates me and maybe one day I will be fortunate enough to visit
