Fereidoun Hoveyda's Very Last Interview for Iran's Oral History Project


Fereidoun Hoveyda's Very Last Interview for Iran's Oral History Project
by Darius Kadivar

Although in frail health, Fereidoun Hoveyda the former diplomat and Brother of the late Prime Minister Amir Abbas Hoveyda gave a final interview to Hamid Ahmadi for the Iranian Oral History Project. Unfortunately the final part of the interview seems incomplete just when it was getting deeply interesting in relation to his views on the Shah's rule, but he manages to speak about his life and career and shared memories on his brother and relations with the Shah.     Recommended Reading:

Haven't finished watching all the videos, but am very impressed with this interview.  It's worth forwarding to friends.  Thanks DK for putting this together.

it puts comments on the other thread on Hoveyda to shame.

Thank you!
