Protest in Iran: KPFK Wed. 6/23

What’s going on right now in Iran — what the protests tell us about the new generation of Iranians, and about the future of the Islamic Republic — and what Obama, and the American Left, should do to support democracy and oppose tyranny.
MARK LeVINE will explain. He teaches the history of the modern Middle East at UC Irvine and has written four books, including Heavy Metal Islam: Rock, Resistance, and the Struggle for the Soul of Islam and Impossible Peace: Israel/Palestine Since 1989.

Also: “The Rebellion of Ronald Reagan” – JAMES MANN talks about the hidden history of the end of the Cold War, and about Reagan’s split from the Republican right in his second term, and about his fear of nuclear war. Mann is the author of the much-admired book Rise of the Vulcans, on the Bush White House; his new book is The Rebellion of Ronald Reagan: A History of the End of the Cold War.
