As the Middle East has once again erupted in chaos and bloodshed, the time is right for a reassessment of the man whose life and death created many of the conditions for the present situation. Amir Taheri, who for six years was the editor of Iran's main newspaper "Kayhan", knew the Shah well and has had access to his private papers. He has interviewed the Shah's closest relatives, including Empress Farah and Princess Ashraf, and many of his ministers, advisers and political opponents. This biography explains not only the secular transformation of Iran but the religious backlash which destroyed the Shah and transformed the world order.

Descrizione libro Hutchinson, London, 1991. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Fine. First Edition. A unique account of political and personal forces that destroyed the Iranian monarchy and a 2,500 year old tradition tradition which, as the Shah obsessively pointed out, made him a descendant of Cyrus and Darius. The author gives ungrudging credit to the Shah's early successes at modernization and liberalization but watches in horror as the Shah becomes increasingly dictatorial, reclusive and unpredictable through to the rise of the Ayatollah and Muslim Fundamentalists. Written by former Iranian ambassador to the UN and brother of former Iranian Prime Minister. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Codice libro della libreria 014234
