"This book rises above common misconceptions to tell an important story, one that forged the destiny of Iran and changed the course of Middle East history. There is no better book on the Shah, his rule and legacy, and none more enjoyable to read."--Vali Nasr, author of The Shia Revival "A thorough and vivid picture of a very significant period in the political history of Iran and the larger world."--Farhad Kazemi, author of Poverty and Revolution in Iran
