About the Author

Alinaghi Alikhani is a former President of Tehran University. Before that he was appointed by Alama as a Minister of Economy, a post he retained for six years.


Alam, who died in 1978, enjoyed a unique perspective on the rise and fall of Iran's Pahlavi dynasty, having served for nine years as first prime minister and then minister of court to the Shah of Iran. In this distillation of his confidential diaries that cover 1969 to 1977, Alam provides a wealth of information on this powerful Middle East leader who was both friend and manipulator of the United States and the world's oil economy. Since the author met with the Shah on a daily basis, readers are exposed to a torrent of minutiae that is overwhelming. The book adds fine detail but little of substance to the story of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi and the waning days of his reign. Recommended only for very large collections for specialists in the field.--David P. Snider, Casa Grande P.L., Ariz.

Asadollah Alam's diaries are the stuff of true history - hastily written, post-midnight accounts of a chief courtier's days. - Independent on Sunday
