This month Hoover Library & Archives teamed with Hoover Press to publish A Window into Modern Iran: The Ardeshir Zahedi Papers at the Hoover Institution Library & Archives, which showcases the inner workings of Iranian politics through the meticulously preserved documents and photographs in the Ardeshir Zahedi papers at the Hoover Institution Library & Archives. These archives were preserved over the course of two illustrious careers: those of Ardeshir Zahedi, Iran’s ambassador to the United States and United Kingdom, and minister of foreign affairs; and his father, Fazlollah Zahedi, military general and prime minister of Iran after the 1953 overthrow of Mohammad Mossadegh. The collection of Ardeshir Zahedi are essential for understanding modern Iranian history and its global context. This volume, edited by Hoover fellow Dr. Abbas Milani, provides never before published papers and photos that are indispensable primary sources for scholarship on modern Iranian history.
