Beschrijving

44 Days: Iran and the Remaking of the World is a deep and moving photographic saga about the 44 days surrounding the overthrow of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in the violent Iranian Revolution. With a foreword by CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour and an introductory essay by New York Times writer John Kifner, the book recounts the revolution and provides insight into how it has shaped modern-day Iran. Beginning with the first day of the coup, December 27, 1978, 44 Days narrates the fall of the empire - detailing the monarchy's last-ditch effort to install a civilian government. The book documents the chaos during leadership shifts and the establishment of the Islamic Republic. The Epilogue covers the first attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iran, on February 14, 1979, which foreshadowed the assault on the American Embassy and the 444-day hostage crisis. Thirty years later, it is as compelling and timely as ever and an important link in our understanding of Middle East history.
