A biography of one of the first liberals in the Middle East and a remarkable patriot who embodied his nation's struggle for freedom, which led to his untimely demise and resulted in the Islamic Revolution of 1979.

HARPERCOLL
Christopher de Bellaigue, a former contributor to The Economist, brings to light the fascinating story of one of the great anti-colonial heroes of the twentieth century: Muhammad Mossadegh, the great Iranian leader whose untimely demise resulted in the Islamic Revolution of 1979, and a man who has been demonized, ridiculed, and misunderstood in the West while remaining an icon and an inspiration across the Middle East. Patriot of Persia, a new biography exploring his life and impact, opens a crucial new window into Mossadegh—whose role in the evolution of Iran’s political climate cannot be overemphasized—providing a resource that will prove equally invaluable to academics, newshounds, and activists as they struggle to understand Mideast politics, Iran, Ahmadinejad, and the future of the region—and the world.

I finished reading this book and I found it interesting because it revealed how somewhat nuts Mossadegh was in playing into his own overthrow. Not that the Brits and USA did not help inflame an already volatile situation.
