Why the protests in Iran today are reminiscent of a revolution in 1906

Iran scholar Reza Aslan joins Here & Now‘s Robin Young to discuss anti-government protests in Iran and how it reminds him of the first democratic revolution in the Middle East in Iran in 1906. He writes about it in a new Time magazine article and a new book “An American Martyr in Persia: The Epic Life and Tragic Death of Howard Baskerville.”
