Behind the 1953 Coup in Iran: Thugs, Turncoats, Soldiers, and Spooks

Availability: Ready to download

Ali Rahnema's newest work is a meticulous historical reconstruction of the events surrounding the Iranian coup d'�tat in 1953 that led to the overthrow of Mohammed Mosaddeq and his government. Mosaddeq's removal from power has probably attracted more attention than any other event occurring during his tenure because of the role of foreign involvement; the political, econom Ali Rahnema's newest work is a meticulous historical reconstruction of the events surrounding the Iranian coup d'�tat in 1953 that led to the overthrow of Mohammed Mosaddeq and his government. Mosaddeq's removal from power has probably attracted more attention than any other event occurring during his tenure because of the role of foreign involvement; the political, economic and social impact on Iran and the long-term impact the ousting had on Iran-U.S. relations. Drawing on a wealth of American, British and Iranian sources, Rahnema closely examines the four-day period between the first failed coup and the second successful attempt, investigating in fine detail how the two coups were conceptualised, rationalised and then executed by players on both the Anglo-American and Iranian sides. Through painstaking research into little-studied sources, Rahnema casts new light on how a small group of highly influential pro-Britain politicians and power brokers with important connections revisited the realities on the ground with the CIA operatives dispatched to Iran and how they recalibrated a new, and ultimately successful, operational plan.

    Highly informative and well-worth the price tag. Normally it's $100 due to printing only when you order. However, this work is scholarly enough that it's the highest valued resource on the 1953 collection I currently have found.
