This epic biography, a gripping insider's account, is a long-overdue chronicle of the life and times of Mohammad Reza Shah, who ruled from 1941 to 1979 as the last Iranian monarch. Gholam Reza Afkhami uses his unparalleled access to a large number of individualsa€”including high-ranking figures in the shah's regime, members of his family, and members of the oppositiona€”to depict the unfolding of the shah's life against the forces and events that shaped the development of modern Iran. The first major biography of the Shah in twenty-five years, this richly detailed account provides a radically new perspective on key events in Iranian history, including the 1979 revolution, U.S.-Iran relations, and Iran's nuclear program. It also sheds new light on what now drives political and cultural currents in a country at the heart of today's most perplexing geopolitical dilemmas.Home, Alex Douglas, 221 Hoopes, Townsend, 300 Hosseinieh Ershad, 445 hostage crisis, 564a€“67, 573a€“75, 579, 581a€“85 ... culture, a€ 443a€“45 Indonesia: Bandung Conference, 290; and Chinese, 296; OPEC, 267a€“68 Industrial Credit Bank, 324anbsp;...
