American Coup by Joseph Ayella
American Coup delves into the considerations that lay at the root of the decision to stage a coup to remove Premier Mohammed Mossadegh, who was democratically elected in 1951. The primary justification behind the coup was that Mossadegh nationalized the oil trade, thereby excluding the British who had wielded power up until that point. The question that remains is to what extent the actions of the United States and Great Britain paved the way for the Islamification of Iran, and all the ramifications that this has entailed for human rights there.
