Iran: The Untold Story

By Mohamed Heikal
Pantheon, 1982
217 pp. $14.50

Though by no means the whole untold story, this book on the Iranian revolution by the noted Egyptian journalist is of special interest on two counts: one, it provides new information, the result of his own investigations and interviews both before and during the revolution (with the Shah, Khomeini, Bazargan and others); and, two, it gives a new viewpoint, that of a non-Iranian Middle Easterner who sees Americans and the U.S. government as having totally misread and misunderstood Iranian affairs for years.
