    • Abstract:
      The article looks at the social and political condition in Iran a year after Muhammad Khatami was elected as president of the nation. As the elected president, he promised to make Iran a more democratic and pleasant place. And, indeed, the country has opened up since he assumed office nine months ago. Debate on almost any subject is now tolerated. The right to speak out is probably the public's biggest gain from the new government. The press is much freer than it was. But the government has so far introduced no institutional reforms and Iranians are acutely aware that the changed atmosphere could be transient. Parliament seems determined to fight the new liberalism. In the past few weeks it has passed a string of measures to enforce Islamist rules.
