Nixon, Kissinger, and the Shah

The United States and Iran in the Cold War

Roham Alvandi

  • Challenges the conventional view of the shah as a mere instrument of American power during the Cold War by extending the study of US-Iran relations into the 1970s when the shah emerged as a major international figure.
  • Draws on extensive multi-archival research, making use of recently declassified U.S. documents.
  • Draws on Persian-language sources.
  • Examines the origins of Iran's nuclear program in the 1970s under the shah.
