The Soviet Union and Revolutionary Iran
The Soviet Union and Revolutionary Iran
By Aryeh Y. Yodfat
St. Martin's, 1984, 168 pp

An Israeli scholar's survey of Russian-Iranian relations from the 19th century to the present, concentrating on the years since the fall of Shah Mohammed Reza in 1979. It is a convenient summary, without unusual insights, but making full use of the Soviet press and other sources.
