MoreIrans Organization for the Mobilization of the Oppressed (Sazeman-e Basij-e Mostazafan), commonly known as the Basij, is a paramilitary organization used by the regime to suppress dissidents, vote as a bloc, and indoctrinate Iranian citizens. Captive Society surveys the Basijs history, structure, and sociology, as well as its influence on Irans society, economy, and educational system. Saied Golkars account draws not only on published materials — including Basij and Revolutionary Guard publications, allied websites, and blogs — but also on his own informal communications with Basij members while studying and teaching in Iranian universities as recently as 2014.

In addition, he incorporates findings from surveys and interviews he conducted while in Iran.Saeid Golkar is a lecturer in Middle East and North African studies at Northwestern University and a visiting fellow of Iran policy at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
