Shaul Bakhash – Clarence J. Robinson Professor of History at George Mason University


The once fearsome revolutionary government of Iran may have entered an age of uncertainty. The 65% of Iran's population that is under 30 is increasingly restless. Drug traffic from Afghanistan has begun to corrupt Iranian government and society. And the violence of Iraq together with the American presence in that country is deeply feared. The problems, coupled with international concern over Iran's nuclear ambitions have unsettled Iranian politics just before the June Presidential election. Shaul Bakash explains the issue.
