A Window into Modern Iran

Edited by: Abbas Milani
ISBN: 978-0-8179-2174-3

As foreign minister under the last shah and ambassador to the United States, Ardeshir Zahedi was Iran’s preeminent statesman in the two decades before the Iranian Revolution toppled the nation’s leadership in 1979. This publication draws from the thousands of records, letters, documents, and photographs meticulously preserved by Zahedi and his father, General Fazlollah Zahedi, to provide a rare and unmediated view of a century of social and political history in Iran.

The Myth of the Great Satan

Author: Abbas Milani
ISBN: 978-0-8179-1134-8

This critical review of the history of America's relations with Iran shows how little of the two countries' long and complicated relationship is reflected in the foundational axioms of the "Great Satan" myth. The author explains why meaningful and equitable relations can begin only after the two nations have arrived at a common, critical, and accurate reading of the past.
