Each text is produced in certain conditions and with different degrees of selection and based on a certain relation with power, and it is available for readers who have different conditions. Analysts believe that there is no null and neuter discourse, because of the lack of pure social fact, but we are faced with discourses or texts belonging to certain people, fractions, ideologies and cultures. Therefore, the text shall be viewed as a meaningful totality while this meaning is not necessarily inside the text itself. Using a deconstructionist view, the author seeks to show the true face of the text of that article as well as reveal the meaning was attached to it at the time of its production. Deconstruction actually shows that each text has two meanings. First is a meaning and understanding which is loyal to the text and shows its one-dimensional determination.

They were mostly educated elite, political activists, intellectuals, emancipated women, people associated with the previous regime, and members of religious minorities, especially Baha,is and Jews. Some young Iranians also fled the country because of the fear of being drafted to the military for the War with Iraq.

Qajar dynasty. The revolution opened the way for fundamental change in Persia, heralding the modern era. It was a period of unprecedented debate in a burgeoning press, and new economic opportunities. Many groups fought to shape the course of the revolution, and all segments of society were in some way changed by it.
