Publisher's Comments

- The book will be published just in time for the 25th anniversary of the embassy takeover.
- The conflict between militant Islam and the West was catalyzed in Iran in 1979, making this the best kind of history: a book that helps us understand not only the past, but the present.
- Harris traveled to Iran and Europe to interview participants whom previous books had ignored, so for the first time we also get the full, inside story of what happened.
