In the news…
As tensions heat up between the US and Iran, this journalist’s account of the CIA-backed coup that overthrew the Iranian prime minister in 1953 sheds light on how the attack’s aftershocks continue to rattle relations today.

Description

With a thrilling narrative that sheds much light on recent events, this national bestseller brings to life the 1953 CIA coup in Iran that ousted the country’s elected prime minister, ushered in a quarter-century of brutal rule under the Shah, and stimulated the rise of Islamic fundamentalism and anti-Americanism in the Middle East. Selected as one of the best books of the year by the Washington Post and The Economist, it now features a new preface by the author on the folly of attacking Iran.
