Review: The Great American Plunder of Persia's Antiquities, 1925-1941User Review - Goodreads
A slightly more inspiring rant against the West, this time personified by American archaeologists. It's a justifiable polemic, but reading polemics can start to grate on you after a while, and personally, Majd started to grate by page 8. Still, a useful document.
