139 An Islamic alternative

In 1979 the revolution in Iran greatly promoted the proliferation of Islamic alternatives to nationalism and communism. At first, resistance to the modernist Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi (1919-1980) led liberal and leftist groups to align with Islamic ones, but the latter seized control. Organizations such as those of the railway workers in Iran, which published the journal Lokomotiv (this issue is from 1980), found fault with the ‘social shortcomings’ of the new government. European-style labour unions were prohibited.
