A Dubious Purchase: Iran’s Nuclear Program

After the Iranian Revolution in 1979, Iran has come under international scrutiny for its human rights violations, nuclear programs, land mines, and censorship. Finding it difficult to procure necessary equipment for its nuclear program, the government turned to civilians for obtaining necessary parts.

“Until We Are Free,” by Shirin Ebadi, narrates how Iran’s government took her life away, and how she persevered.
