    Some lovely work here and all suitable for hanging (no pun intended), but for a real look at the Iranian Green Movement I recommend Jon Lee Anderson’s “After the Crackdown: Talking to Mahmoud Abmadinejad—and the Opposition—about Iran Today” in the Aug. 16 & 23, 2010 issue of THE NEW YORKER.

    Unlike most of this work, it’s not very pretty, but it’s very persuasive.
