Shirin Ebadi's Latest Book is a Novel entitled La cage dorée which starts with a Quote of Ali Shariati : "Si Vous Ne Pouvez Pas Eliminer L'Injustice Au Moins Racontez Le a Tous" aka "If you cannot get rid of injustice the least you can do is to let the world know about it". Ali Shariati is considered as the ideologue of the Islamic Revolution of 1979 who died in mysterious circumstances in England in 1977. Some suspected that he was eliminated by SAVAK the Shah's secret Police, others supected other hardline Islamists to have eliminated him. More on him Here
