A timely reexamination of one of the most important bilateral relations in the last century.

"Collier sheds light on the debate over the extent of Shah’s dependence (Shah the puppet or otherwise) but does not resolve it. This is an important and thorough contribution to the literature."—Choice

"An incredibly timely work."—Democratization Journal

"This excellent book is theoretically innovative and full of insight into the nooks and crannies of the US-Iran relationship."—Matthew Shannon, H-Net Reviews

"Collier’s deeply researched book is a must-read for analysts hoping to understand the origins, history, and trajectory of the Islamic Republic. The events analyzed in this book are still shaping international politics today and Collier’s adept analysis informs our understanding of the current international situation. This important work is both timely and essential reading."—Tom Donlion, former National Security Advisor and distinguished fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations

"A nuanced and meticulously researched study that provides refreshingly new insights into the ups and downs of the last Shah’s relations with successive US administrations. Essential reading for all those who wish to go beyond common clichés about the fraught relationship between the United States and Iran."—Houchang Chehabi, professor of international relations and history, Boston University

"The book’s strength is in its chronological account, full of detail and rich in research."—Stephen McGlinchey, senior lecturer in international relations, University of the West of England
