Persian Perils

by Barry Anderson

Persian Perils Synopsis

An American's personal accounts of events in 1978 and 1979 leading up to the Iranian revolution and the fall of the Shah of Iran. Chapters cover evacuation, sightseeing, food & culture and the political chaos during this turbulent period in the Middle East and, specifically, Iran. From the tension at Mehrabad Airport during the desperate evacuation; to the smells and tastes of the kabobs, breads, fruits and desserts on the city streets; to the awe and majesty of Percepolis and Shriaz; to visits to the morgue and jails of Tehran; reading this book will make the reader feel like they are there. A copy of the death threat tacked on the author's door brings home the tension and stress the American expatriates were experiencing. The book has many pictures taken by the author during his assignment in Tehran. Through the author's experiences, some humorous and others frightening, the reader will develop a better understanding regarding the great divide between Iran and America that exists even today.
