The book is an old edition. It is out of print but should be available at the Library of Congress. It was too thick to be published in its entirety here ( except for the photos).

It is most interesting to academics or any student in history interested in 20th century Iran. Today it can be read from a new perspective since the Cold War is over and the relations between Iran and Russia ( former Soviet Union) seem to be revived in recent years particulary with Vladimir Putin's historical visit to Iran ( Although Iranian diplomats and even the Shah had visited the Soviet Union several times during his reign and even the Soviet Podgorny participated to the Persepolis Celebrations of 1971 ).

Is this the whole book? Where is the rest of it? Have you read the book? Is there anything interesting there (that we did not know)?


Iran's rooted problems

by amirkabear4u on

I am glade this issue is mentioned as a lot of Iranians believe russians had no hands in Iran. In fact it was because of the russians US showed so much interest in Iran. Majority of problems in Iran are foriegn rooted.

Yet to discover a lot more in the future.
