The book examines the turbulent political climate that prevailed in Iran during Mosaddeq's tenure, the confrontation between Iran and Britain for control over Iran's oil, the strategic considerations that led U.S. officials to opt for a coup, and the details of the coup itself. Based on exhaustive research by leading academic experts in the field, this is the most authoritative account of the tragic events that led to the overthrow of Mosaddeq. With the recent declassification of CIA documents regarding the 1953 coup that overthrew Mohammad Mossadeq's government in Iran, there is an opportunity for new in-depth analysis into not only the coup Coup d'Etat itself but the events that inevitably led up to it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
More books should have such a pedigree. . . . Seven polished studies that speak to each other. . . . The book [provides] a richly and tightly reasoned setting out of what might be dubbed the emerging scholarly synthesis: the British started it, but the United States took it over; Cold War concerns about 'losing' Iran were a greater factor than was oil nationalization.--Foreign Affairs
Gasiorowski, the world's foremost living authority on the conduct of the coup, provides a detailed and fascinating account of its various stages based on published materials and interviews with former CIA operatives.--International Journal of Middle East Studies
The articles are meticulously researched and thick with detail. Moreover, many of them . . . use interviews to supplement the available written sources.--Middle East Journal
