Desmond Harney, a former British diplomat charged with political reporting, was living in Tehran in 1979 at the time of the Revolution. He felt compelled to keep a day-to-day record of the events he was witnessing around him as the priest and the king--the Ayatollah Khomeini and the Shah of Iran--squared off against each other. The result is this stunning first-hand account of one of the 20th century's most momentous episodes.
