Shirin Ebadi, the Iranian woman who won this year's Nobel Peace Prize, will be allowed to publish her memoirs in the United States, following the outcome of a prolonged legal battle with the U.S. government. Officials had argued that an economic embargo on Iran precluded Ebadi publishing a book in the United States.
