About this book
A look at one of the most anxiously watched countries of our time, from the author of "Iran: Empire Of The Mind".
Ayatollah Khomeini's return to Tehran in February 1979 was a key moment in post-War international politics. This book offers an account of Iran's unique history and makes sense of events often misunderstood by outsiders. It is an exploration of Iran's development since 1979 into an unpredictable pseudo-democracy.
