All the Shah's men: An American coup & the roots of Middle East terror - Stephen Kinzer

Half a century ago, the USA overthrew a Middle Eastern government for the first time.

The victim was Mohammad Mossadegh, the democratically elected prime minister of Iran. Although the coup seemed a success at first, today it serves as a chilling lesson about the dangers of foreign intervention.

In this book, veteran NY Times correspondent Stephen Kinzer gives the first full account of this fateful operation. His account is centered around an hour-by-hour reconstruction of the events of 8/1953, & concludes with an assessment of the coup's "haunting & terrible legacy."
