Countercoup: The Struggle for the Control of Iran *SIGNED AND MORBIDLY INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR*
McGraw-Hill, 1979. 217 pages. Black and white photos. Signed by author upon front free endpaper beneath his chilling hand - written inscription "For Leo with warmest regards from his fellow liquidator." Kermit Roosevelt was given the go - ahead to mastermind the overthrow of democratically elected Iranian President Mossadegh after the latter nationalized the Iranian oil industry in 1951. "Roosevelt explains in minute - by - minute detail how he performed his mission... He tells with whom he worked, how he worked, and how the plan was almost aborted." - from dust jacket. "Kermit Roosevelt admitted on NPR radio that in 1953 the CIA and British intelligence carried out a wave of bombings and shootings in Iran. He then went on to brag about how they subsequently blamed the bombings on Iran's President, Mossadegh." - from an online reference. An important book, particularly given America's current preoccupation with Iran, again. Average wear to unmarked book. Binding sound. Various substantial defects to dust jacket which is now preserved in archival - grade Brodart. A significant piece of American, and Iranian, history.
