UK journalist falsely imprisoned by the Iran police state

About the Author

London-based Iranian journalist and film-maker Maziar Bahari was arrested without charge during the 2009 Iranian election protests. His family's campaign for his release won international support, including from Panorama, The Daily Show, Channel 4 News, The New York Times and the Economist, among many others.


"Then They Came for Me is a unique achievement. It is a story not just of political cruelty (a subject Bahari treats movingly), but also about the two poles of Iranian political culture, bent together in upheaval."

* Guardian *

"I really connected to Maziar's story. It's a personal story but one with universal appeal about what it means to be free."

-- Jon Stewart

"Then They Came for Me is the story of those who fight to inform and enlighten their society. Fortunately, Iran is not only a country of Ahmadinejads and mullahs; the country is also blessed with plenty of Maziar Baharis."-

-- Shirin Ebadi, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize

"This harrowing memoir provides an illuminating glimpse into the security apparatus of one of the world's most repressive countries. Especially timely given recent events throughout the Middle East, this book is recommended for anyone wishing to better understand the workings of a police state."

* Kirkus Reviews *

"A beautifully written account of life in Iran, filled with insights not only into the power struggles and political machinations but into the personal, emotional lives of the people living in that complicated country. Maziar Bahari is a brave man and a wonderful storyteller."

* Fareed Zakaria - author of The Post-American World *

"What makes Bahari's account so readable is not only his sense of fair play - he tries to understand the motivations of the regime, and of his torturer - but also his keen sense of fun and humour."

* The Sunday Times *

"A profound, yet intimate insight into modern day Iran, told through Bahari's own and his family's experience of living through it. A wonderful book."

* Jon Snow - Channel Four News *

Offers an alarming window into the minds of those who rule Iran today... Readers will come away from this intimate, authoritative book with a fuller understanding of Iran, why its green uprising petered out, and why no one should be surprised if it kicks off again.

* Financial Times *

Absolutely compelling. A must-read.

* Elementary V Watson *
