The Fall of Heaven: The Pahlavis and the Final Days of Imperial Iran
I am so happy to have Andrew Scott Cooper return to Joy on Paper to talk about his wonderful book about the last days of the Shah of Iran.
The paperback version comes out on May 15th and it is a must read book for everyone who wants to understand the problems we are facing in the Middle East.
Cooper is a fantastic writer -- he takes us back in time and tells a story that will keep you enthralled.
“The Fall of Heaven is a vivid and penetrating portrait of the last chapters of imperial Iran and the ruler whose attempt to thrust his country into modernity ended with upheaval and exile. This book provides valuable insight into the background of a revolution that is still shaking international politics today.”
―Paul R. Pillar, twenty-eight-year veteran of the CIA and senior fellow at Georgetown University and the Brookings Institution
