The story of a grassroots political movement that flourished throughout the 1970s and 1980s.


Focusing on the immediate prerevolutionary period and the first decade of the Islamic Republic, Bayat discusses the economic and political strategies of ‘ordinary´ [Iranian] people, mainly in Tehran. . . . He demonstrates that, for these people at least, the populist revolution did not bring about the changes that they needed or wanted.
