1979 was a notable year with political, religious, and cultural leaders converging and rebelling against the status quo. The events that took place that year have changed the political and economic state of the world in ways we are still trying to understand and appreciate. Author Christian Caryl discusses this transformative year in his book, "Strange Rebels: 1979 and the Birth of the 21st Century." Mr. Caryl is a regular contributor to the New York Times Review of Books and is a senior fellow at the Legatum Institute and at the Center for International Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology respectively.
