Read e-book online Khomeini und der Islamische Gottesstaat: Eine große Idee. PDF

By Luise Rinser

Inmitten der Wirren der Islamischen Revolution besuchte Luise Rinser den Iran und legte hiermit einen Gegenentwurf zur Berichterstattung der internationalen Medien vor. Sie beschreibt ihre Eindrücke aus einer von großer Unsicherheit geprägten Zeit stets mit besonderem Blick auf die scenario des Einzelnen. Im Rückblick wissen wir heute, dass sich die islamischen Machthaber schnell durchsetzten und linke Oppositionsgruppen sukzessive ausschalteten. Die Einwohnerzahl des Landes hat sich seit 1979 verdoppelt, das Land sich geöffnet, doch das komplexe, jahrhundertealte Machtgefüge und die daraus resultierenden Spannungen bleiben bestehen.
