1 Review
This Iranian cleric led the revolution that overthrew the shah in 1979 and symbolized the hostile relationship between Iran and the United States for most of the 1980s through today. Willett's book examines Khomeini's rise as a fundamentalist religious leader who wanted an Islamic state strictly based on the Koran. This biography describes his impact on Iran since the revolution.
