All the Shah's Men, by veteran New York Times foreign correspondent Stephen Kinzer, is the story of the Anglo-American coup which toppled the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran, Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh, elevating the constitutional monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, to absolute ruler.
Kinzer's bestselling chronicle of the 1953 coup is also available as an eBook and on CD, cassette or download as an audio book (alas, it is not read by the author). There are also editions in Spanish, Greek, Turkish, Serbian, Portugese and Hebrew; and unauthorized farsi versions have circulated in Iran for years.
In 2008, All the Shah's Men was reissued with a new foreword by Stephen Kinzer, The Folly of Attacking Iran. In lieu of the standard promotional book tour, Kinzer embarked on a national speaking tour to sound the alarm on the folly of war.
