Item description for The Strangling of Persia by Morgan W. Shuster...

In 1911, an ambitious American was invited by a budding Iranian democracy to bring financial stability to the country. He went with the blessing of the British and Russian governments, both of which enjoyed a wide sphere of influence in the region. However, no one expected him to succeed so quickly in making Iran into a credible democracy and he was ousted by the actions of the Russian and British governments. After he was forced to return to the US, Shuster wrote a book revealing the true motives of the superpowers of the time and how the region's course of history was forever altered. Strangling of Persia offers keen insights into the timeless methods used by powerful nations to achieve their own ends. Almost 100 years after its' first publication, it remains a powerful indictment of a short-sighted policy that crushed a fragile but promising democracy.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Strangling of Persia?

In the name of Iran  Feb 3, 2007
This book was first hand account of Mr. W. Morgan SHUSTER that how he was a finance consultant for Iran's government during early 1900. He wroked hard to reform Iran's corrupt institutes, and when Russia and Britian found him a problem. Thus, Russia invaded Iran and their army murdered innocent Iranian. Consequently, Mr. SHUSTER quit his position and he left Iran so Russian army would stop murdering Iranians.

It is an excellent book, it worth every penny.
An American in Tehran; US exceptionalism & the Great-p.  Nov 2, 1998
Shuster's work stands as a prime example of American exeptionalism when the US was still an exception in international relations. His story is a sad tale of an American realist/idealist who attempted to rise above the great-power rivalries to bring stability and autonomy to a budding democracy caught between strategic conciderations. Anyone farmilure with the US involvement in the coup to overthrow the popular goverment of Mossadiq in 1953 will notice the many parellels and sad ironies in the Shuster text. This book is also perfect as a background to the relationship between the US and the Persian people. Shuster's work is a truely American attack on the European empirial system, and a scathing critic of the culture of diplomacy. Shuster was an exceptional man writing in an exceptional time, but it was exceptions such as Shuster which generated America's exceptional image throughout the world. Robert S. Glase
