Synopsis of "Great Satan" vs. the "Mad Mullahs: How the United States and Iran Demonize Each Other

Beeman (anthropology and Middle East studies, Brown U.) seeks to understand the cultural underpinnings of the rhetoric between Iran and the US since the 1979 revolution overthrowing the Shah. He identifies the "master myths" of construction for the other for the two countries and then discusses the rhetorical structures that the US and Iran use to construct dialogue with each other. Beeman deals with the dynamics of rhetoric that resulted in constructions of "Mad Mullahs" and the "Great Satan," with wellsprings in the respective cultures of the United States and Iran more than in the realities of historical and political events. He concludes with a strategy for mutual coexistence that breaks down constructions of the other as evil. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
