Khomeini: Life of the Ayatollah
This biography examines the process which saw an old Muslim theologian overthrow the Shah of Iran and become the leader of a militant Islamic regime. It examines the background and early life of the Ayatollah and the ideas and beliefs that lay behind his opposition to the Shah and formed the foundation of the new Islamic state.

This is a wonderful book, informative and exciting. I recently did an in depth study of the Iranian uprising of 1963 and found this book to be most helpful. The chapters are broken down in a way that lends themselves to being remembered, and the writing style is both academic but also fun to read.
