PLEASE NOTE: these copies are outside of the first pressing of 550, hence the cheaper price. The red foil title is slightly damaged on some small spots and they’re unnumbered because it was overprinted. There will be an X/550 instead of number inside for these limited copies. These are the last copies of this book available as the publisher is completely sold out.
‘‘In life a man must either become angelic or human or animal. I have become none of these things.’’
Crime Wave Tehran by Pouria Khojastehpay was compiled through individual submissions, research in Iranian media archives, and social media.
This book provides a glimpse behind the curtain of state-censorship and takes a closer look into the world of organized crime in Iran. A subject considered taboo in Iran and unheard of amongst many Iranians.
From battle scars and prayers, to criminal tattoos and blood spilt for gold, the Iranian criminals are united by a life in between crime and their devotion to Shia Islam.
