Chapter Two: 1st comment
"Bakhtiar imagined that he could take charge of the leadership of the revolutionary movement. He thought that by making democratic concessions, he could win the people away from Khomeini. Well, this was not possible. As a result, he had concentrated all his energy and all his power on trying to win the revolutionary game and not the counter-revolutionary game."
