100 Years of Modern Iran (1891-1991)

100 Years of Modern Iran (1891-1991)

by J Gerlach

Iran has been at the center of the action for over 2500 years, but J. Gerlach's Simple History Series covers a particularly tumultuous era from 1891-1991. This period saw the end of the nation's monarchy, coups, foreign overthrows, revolutions, and its ascent as the world's first Islamic theocracy.  This page turner also gives great insight into the Judeo-Christian West's current war on the Islamic world.
