Anne Gilbert replied to Philip Carl SALZMAN's discussion Popular resistence in Iran in the group Anthropology of Iran
"Sounds like, from the things I've been reading on the link, there is resistance, but it as yet rather small-scale and "underhanded". This is, in part, because of the Iranian governmetn's massive retaliation against many of those…"

Anne Gilbert replied to Philip Carl SALZMAN's discussion Causes of problems in Iran in the group Anthropology of Iran
"I'm aware that there are people in Israel who want to bomb, bomb, bomb Iran, but I think a "Zionist conspiracy to defame Iranian officials" is a bit much, even for Iranians. Just my "outside" view, though. Anne G"

Anne Gilbert replied to Philip Carl SALZMAN's discussion Islamic Republic State Terrorism in the group Anthropology of Iran
"These protests, and the opposition, are not going to go away, even if the Iranian government tries to jail and humiliate all of them. Because, in the first place, they won't get everybody, and those that are left will just get a bad taste in…"

"Galina: Glad you joined! One of the first things I learned about Ursula le Guin was that she was the daughter of Alfred Kroeber. I found this quite impressive."

Anne Gilbert replied to Philip Carl SALZMAN's discussion Youth and Young Adults in Iran in the group Anthropology of Iran
"That's an interesting question. Youth everywhere tend to think that nobody has experienced what they are experiencing, and i a way, they're right. This is especially true, I would think, in Iran, where the older generation had a quite…"

"This analysis of Neda Agha-Sultan's name is interesting to say the least. The "Neda" part sounds Persian, all rightThe familiy name is "imported", but as far as I can tell, so are many other Iranian family names. It's…"

Anne Gilbert commented on Jeremy Johnson's group Anthropology of Fiction
"Nikos: There's absolutely nothing wrong with tis approach, if that's what you want to do. Just don't assume that more "popular" writers have "nothing to say"; studying them might actually open up insights into…"

Anne Gilbert commented on Jeremy Johnson's group Anthropology of Fiction
"Nikos: Like Gauri says, you are entitled to your opinion about Stephen King or any other author. If you prefer "serious" literature, that is fine. But to claim he is "garbage" just because you don't like his subjects,…"

Anne Gilbert commented on Jeremy Johnson's group Anthropology of Fiction
"Gauri:c I don't "exactly" know why Stephen King is popular. Part of it has to do with the fact that by now, he's well-known, a "name brand", so to speak. In some ways, his writing is very good; the way he sets up his…"

Anne Gilbert replied to Philip Carl SALZMAN's discussion Does Iran have a radical government and a moderate population? in the group Anthropology of Iran
"Well, okay. No more quotes around tribe. The trouble is, (and sorry for the quotes here, but I'm sort of illustrating) "tribe" is kind of a loaded word, because it seems to mean different things to different people. Afghanistan is, or…"

Anne Gilbert replied to Philip Carl SALZMAN's discussion Does Iran have a radical government and a moderate population? in the group Anthropology of Iran
"Yeah, Afghani people are "tribal" and apparently always have been. There have always been more urban centers in Iran, many of which are still regionally important. Most people there now live in cities, and most people in Iran are under 30,…"
