    John W. Limbert

    If Iranians are going to enjoy the benefits of democracy, then Iran must speak in its the true voice, the voice of humanity, tolerance, and good humor best exemplified in the glorious poetry of Rumi, Hafez, and so many others; and, more recently, in such beautiful and haunting films as “Under the Olive Trees.” Democracy remains a distant goal, however, as long as Iran speaks in another voice, the harsh and ugly voice of the street mob and the goon squad, egged on by demagogues and opportunists. In recent years the latter has threatened to drown out the former; but it has not succeeded. And, if Iran’s long history teaches us anything, the latter will not succeed, and Iran will, sooner or later, regain its true voice.

    Ambassador John W. Limbert holds his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. from Harvard University, the last in History and Middle Eastern Studies. Before joining the Foreign Service, he taught in Iran, both as a Peace Corps Volunteer (1964-66) and as an English instructor at Shiraz ( formerly Pahlavi) University (1969-72). He has written numerous articles on Middle Eastern subjects and has authored Iran: At War with History (1987) and Shiraz in the Age of Hafez ( 2004). Ambassador Limbert holds the Department of State’s Meritorious Honor Award, two Superior Honor Awards, and the Award for Valor, the last received after fourteen months as a hostage in Iran. He also holds the American Foreign Service Association’s Rivkin Award for creative dissent. His foreign languages are Persian, Arabic, and French. He is married to former Parvaneh Tabibzadeh and they have a son and a daughter, both born in Iran.

    Established in 1995, THE IRANICA INSTITUTE has since grown into an international network of scholars, educators, artists and everyone who is interested in the issues that concern a geographic area, historically known as the Iranicas [Eranshahr]. This area includes the following: Iran (Persia), Armenia, Eastern Turkey (Anatolia), Georgia, the Republic of Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, parts of India, Central Asian countries of Tajikistan,Uzbekistan, Kirghizistan, Turkmenistan, and Kazakstan, parts of ancient Mesopotamia, ethnic people such as the Jews, the Kurds and the Assyrians, and the countries around the Persian Gulf.
