9780230579279: Iran and the CIA: The Fall of Mosaddeq Revisited

In the early 1950s, frail septuagenarian prime minister of Iran, Doctor Mohammad Mosaddeq, shook the world - challenging Britain by nationalizing Iran's British-run oil industries. In August 1953 he was overthrown. Revisiting these events with astonishing new evidence, this book challenges the conventionally-held theory of foul play by the CIA.

About the Author:

DARIOUSH BAYANDOR is currently an Iran analyst and historian living in Switzerland. Born Iranian, the author held diplomatic posts in New York and Tehran and was a lecturer on international law, diplomacy and international institutions in Tehran University, the National University of Tehran as well as in the diplomatic school of the foreign ministry prior to the Islamic Revolution. He joined the United Nations in 1980 where he notably headed several UN humanitarian offices in different continents, stretching over a twenty-year period.

Review:

'The author has tackled a subject of great importance, infused with emotions and obscured by political manipulation, objectively and with care, using all available sources and to put the events in their proper context. The book deserves a wide audience and should do much to bring this episode into proper perspective. In short, a first-rate scholarly contribution which has implications for contemporary politics.'- Shahram Chubin, Director of Studies, Geneva Centre for Security Policy

'This is an important and beautifully balanced study of the overthrow of Iran's Prime Minister Mosaddeq. For over fifty years the literature has concentrated on the role of CIA and British intelligence. The author has now revealed the critical participation of important Iranian individuals and political factions.'- Charles Naas, former Director, US-Iranian Affairs at the State Department, Washington and Minister-Chargé d' Affaires in Tehran 1977-79

'It is helpful to be reminded that history often needs re-examining.' - The Economist

'This is an interesting and provocative book.' - Hugh Arbuthnott, Asian Affairs

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 272 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.0in.In the early 1950s, the frail septuagenarian Iranian prime minister shook the world, challenging superpower Britain by nationalizing the British-run oil industries in Iran. His name was Doctor Mohammad Mosaddeq. His subsequent downfall in August 1953 changed the course of Iranian history, and remains a haunting memory for the people of Iran today. The British and American governments collaborated in a plot to remove Mosaddeq but which nonetheless failed to ignite. However, days afterwards, amid violent street disturbances, Mosaddeqs government did indeed fall. So, for half a century the conventional wisdom attributed the events of 19th August 1953 to foul play by the CIA and a myth of CIA power and success was created that has mesmerized opinion ever since and cast a shadow over Irans continuingly troubled relations with America. This path breaking study unearths new documentary evidence to suggest the truth lies elsewhere and that Mosaddeqs fall actually took Washington and London by complete surprise. The author provides compelling evidence to suggest that the toppling of Mosaddeq was rooted primarily in internal Iranian dynamics and that prominent clerics of the time, notably the grand Shiite Marja of the time, Ayatollah Boroujerdi, played a crucial role.
