"More books should have such a pedigree. . . . Seven polished studies that speak to each other. . . . The book [provides] a richly and tightly reasoned setting out of what might be dubbed the emerging scholarly synthesis: the British started it, but the United States took it over; Cold War concerns about ‘losing’ Iran were a greater factor than was oil nationalization."—Foreign Affairs

"Gasiorowski, the world’s foremost living authority on the conduct of the coup, provides a detailed and fascinating account of its various stages based on published materials and interviews with former CIA operatives."—International Journal of Middle East Studies

"The articles are meticulously researched and thick with detail. Moreover, many of them . . . use interviews to supplement the available written sources."—Middle East Journal
