"The Iranian Revolution of 1979 was a turning-point in modern history. The destruction of the Iranian monarchy not only upset the political order in the Middle East and brought on a quarter-century of warfare, but introduced a new way to look at history. In Days of God James Buchan lives each moment of the revolution through the eyes of ordinary people as he tries to answer his own troubling question: why did his friends, with their peculiar Iranian dreaminess and charm, act the way they did?"--Publisher description.

Why for centuries did the spiritual classes give their support to Kings and Princes? If power belongs exclusively to the spiritual classes, how come they have taken so long to recognize it?

The book is very detailed and informative. I found it difficult to read, because the modern history of Iran is so complicated. The book would have been easier for me to get through if it had an appendix with maps, names of people and places, and chronology of events.
