Author Stephen Kinzer: All the Shah’s Men

Marcia Frankin talks with Stephen Kinzer, a New York Times correspondent and author of “All the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle Eastern Terror.”

In his book, Kinzer recounts the 1953 U.S-led coup against Iranian prime minister Mohammed Mossadegh, which resulted in the dictatorship of the Shah. Kinzer talks with Franklin, who just returned from Iran, about the effects the coup continues to have, and the potential future of Iran.
