Transit Tehran : young Iran and its inspirations( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tehran is a city of contradictions. Its swollen population of fourteen million and upwards contains the religious, the irreligious and the simply indifferent. Located on a major fault line, it is nevertheless in the throes of a construction boom. While regular demonstrations after Friday prayers call for the death of Great Satan America, Iranians of all ages enjoy a long-standing love affair with Western luxury brands. Among the hip and fashionable, the veil has morphed from cover-up to come-on, and the young women in colourful scarves and heavy makeup are increasingly targeted by the female officers of the Special Guidance Patrols. Transit Tehran: Young Iran and Its Inspirations is an original anthology of writing and images primarily featuring the generation of photojournalists who came of age during the reformist movement. Newsha Tavakolian, Abbas Kowsari, Javad Montazeri and Omid Salehi continue to document the social transformation of their country despite the government's mass closures of newspapers and magazines. Unexpected facets of urban experience are explored in the art of Sadegh Tirafkan, the new journalism of Asieh Amini, and the short stories of Alireza Mahmoodi-Iranmehr. Transit Tehran also celebrates the long tradition of artistic and cultural resistance that has influenced young Iranians, noticeably in the work of veteran writer and editor Masoud Behnoud, premier satirist and cartoonist Ardeshir Mohassess, and photographers Kaveh Golestan and Mohsen Rastani. The Internet, youth and fashion culture and the homegrown trends of the Islamic Republic fuel the city's paradoxes its pains as well as its obvious pleasures. Sunk in permanent smog, tangled in traffic jams, suffused with the threat of war and political unrest, life in Tehran is chaotic and unpredictable. Its passions and preoccupations make it a city like no other."--Book cover

The Fall of the Shah can be traced back to 1951 when Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh tried to end British domination of Iran. Mossadegh nationalized Iranian oil which had been monopolized by a single British company, BP, for more than 40 years. Mossadegh had to fight against a virtual alliance of foreign and domestic enemies. They undermined him in a struggle for power and control of oil. A struggle which culminated in a coup d'etat plotted and carried out by the CIA in August 1953. More than five decades later it is impossible to understand Iran without understanding Mossadegh's victories and failures. Through exclusive access to eye-witnesses and the characters of the story in Iran, UK and the US as well as never before seen archival material we tell the gripping story of the rise and fall of Mossadegh

"Since 2004, the war in Iraq has become impossibly dangerous for journalists. Few remain there and fewer still venture outside the Green Zone or work unembedded. In this powerful documentary we meet some reporters and photographers who are covering events. Among them are Canadian Scott Taylor and Turkish journalist Zeynep Tugrul, who were kidnapped and tortured by an Al-Queda-related group in Tal Afar, one of the most hazardous spots in Iraq. They managed to talk their way out! We also meet Iraqis covering the war and see how the violence against reporters affects them as well. Several award-winning photographers from The New York times, The Guardian and Newsweek contribute their incredible stories. Indeed, the targeting of media professionals in Iraq has changed war journalism itself."--Container

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Maziar Bahari left London in June 2009 to cover Iran's presidential election, he assured his pregnant fiancee, Paola, that he'd be back in just a few days, a week at most. Little did he know, as he kissed her good-bye, that he would spend the next three months in Iran's most notorious prison, enduring brutal interrogation sessions at the hands of a man he knew only by his smell: Rosewater.For the Bahari family, wars, coups, and revolutions are not distant concepts but intimate realities they have suffered for generations: Maziar's father was imprisoned by the shah in the 1950s, and his sister by Ayatollah Khomeini in the 1980s. Alone in his cell at Evin Prison, fearing the worst, Maziar draws strength from his memories of the courage of his father and sister in the face of torture, and hears their voices speaking to him across the years. He dreams of being with Paola in London, and imagines all that she and his rambunctious, resilient eighty-four-year-old mother must be doin

Rosewater : a family's story of love, captivity, and survival by Maziar Bahari( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Maziar Bahari left London in June 2009 to cover Iran's presidential election, assuring his pregnant fiancee that he'd be back in just a few days, a week at most. But instead, he would spend the next three months in Iran's most notorious prison, enduring brutal interrogations at the hands of a man he knew only by his smell : Rosewater. For the Bahari family, wars, coups, and revolutions are not distant concepts but intimate realities they have suffered for generations - Maziar's father was imprisoned by the Shah in the 1950s, and his sister by Ayatollah Khomeini in the 1980s. During the worst of his encounters with Rosewater, Maziar drew strength from the memories of his loved ones, and prayed that he would be released in time for the birth of his first child. Riveting and heart-wrenching, Rosewater offers insight into the past seventy years of regime change in Iran, as well as the future of a country where the democratic impulses of the youth clash with a totalitarian government. It is the story of a family's courage in the face of repression, and of one man's journey to freedom

Journalistes en Irak( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Depuis 2004, la guerre en Irak est devenue dangereusement impossible pour les journalistes. Il n'en reste que très peu sur place, et encore moins osent s'aventurer au-delà de la Zone verte ou travailler sans être intégrés au sein d'une unité militaire. Dans cet impressionnant documentaire, nous côtoyons une poignée de reporters assez courageux pour couvrir le conflit au péril de leur vie. Parmi eux, le Canadien Scott Taylor et la Turque Zeynep Tugrui, qui ont tous deux été enlevés et torturés par un groupe associé à Al-Qaida, à Tal Afar - un des secteurs les plus hostiles en Irak. Et tous deux ont réussi à négocier leur propre libération! Plusieurs illustres photographes affiliés à des publications telles que le New York Times, Guardian et Newsweek viennent à leur tour partager leurs histoires incroyables. Nous rencontrons également des journalistes irakiens et constatons que la violence dirigée contre les journalistes les concerne tout autant. On se rend vite compte à quel point le ciblage offensif des journalistes en Irak a profondément affecté le concept même du reportage de guerre."--Conteneur
