Gasiorowski (political science, Louisana State U.) draws on declassified US government documents and over 70 interviews to detail the CIA-fomented coup that brought Mohammed Reza Pahlavi to the Peacock Throne of Iran in 1953, and the political impact of US support for his repressive regime until it was overthrown by the 1978 revolution.
