Mr. Kinzer discussed his book, All the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror, published by John Wiley and Sons. He described the involvement of Winston Churchill, Kermit Roosevelt, President Eisenhower, and the CIA in the 1953 coup in Iran. According to Mr. Kinzer, the democratically-elected Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadegh, nationalized the country’s Anglo-Iranian oil industry. The British, in an effort to maintain control, persuaded the American government to facilitate the installation of Mohammad Reza as Shah. The book was published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the coup. After his presentation Mr. Kinzer answered audience members' questions. close
