Modern Revolutions and Persepolis

Today we discussed several modern revolutions and their outcomes.  We also responded to questions about the Iranian Revolution and the role of the West in its inception and outcome.  Have fun during ACT prep class!

Please bring your responses to the following questions on Friday and your responses to the questions for chapters 5-8.

1.  How is the Iranian revolution similar to/different from other modern revolutions?

2. Given the pattern many other post-revolutionary countries have followed, what do you predict will happen in Egypt/Iran?

3.  Evaluate the role of Western (Imperialist) governments in Middle East affairs.  Do they (we) do more harm than good?

4. Predict how the religious, military and government changes in Iran will affect Marjane.
