Shah of Shahs

by Ryszard Kapuscinski - £8.99  Penguin Books (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141188041 | ISBN 10: 0141188049

Shah of Shahs depicts the final years of the Shah in Iran, and is a compellng meditation on the nature of revolution and the devastating effects of fear.
 
Here, Kapuscinski describes the tyrannical monarch, who, despite his cruel oppression of the Iranian people, sees himself as the father of a nation. Yet even as Iran becomes a 'behemoth of riches' and the Shah lives like a European billionaire, its people live in a climate of fear, terrorized by the sectret police.
 
Told with intense power, Kapuscinski portrays the inevitable build-up to revolution - a cataclysmic upheaval that delivered Iran into the rule of the Ayatollah Khomeini.
