Take two: Iran Awakening, Shirin Ebadi

For a full review, see my Patreon

This book was bought by me, when I worked at Sydney University, at the Co-Op Bookshop. The store sat just around the corner from my work office and some at lunchtimes I would visit to browse. I have no idea why I bought this in those days, other than, perhaps, in such a way to participate in the ongoing disaster that was American foreign policy. The US had invaded Iraq on spurious grounds and Ebadi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2003, the year of the invasion. I am grateful for my acquisitiveness now that going out is more difficult, it means I have more resources to call on when there are hours to fill away from friends.
