Iran and the Rise of Reza Shah: From Qajar Collapse to Pahlavi Power
This book looks at one of the most important and engrossing chapters in 20th century Iranian history. The post-World War I period began with a triumvirate of Iranian political grandees, encouraged by the British government, attempting to shoe-horn Iran into the British Empire. This was followed by a bizarre coup d'état, engineered by a British general, which brought to power the Reza Shah Pahlavi who ended 130 years of Qajar rule.
