Présentation de l'éditeur :

At a time when most Westerners fled the carnage in Iran, David Burnett was one of the few to stay and document the breathtakingly sudden fall of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in December 1978, and the chaotic political maneuvering that would culminate in the triumph of the Ayatollahs and the birth of the Islamic Republic.

44 Days re-creates a coup that led to our long hostage crisis, President Jimmy Carter’s political demise, and an enmity still blazing after thirty years. Burnett’s vivid images of the dizzying events and emotions of that turbulent time illustrate his narrative of the monarchy’s destruction, the last-ditch efforts to salvage a secular government, and the establishment of a hard-line regime dominated by religious leaders and the rule of Islamic law. Accompanying Burnett’s account is a penetrating foreword by commentator Christiane Amanpour, herself Iranian-born, as well as an essay by celebrated New York Times reporter John Kifner, who shares his own experience of revolution in Iran and reflects upon its decades-long aftermath.

Filled with powerful insights into the revolution and its pertinence today, this book is for history and current affairs buffs, photography lovers, and everyone interested in the clash of Islamic fundamentalism and the West.

Biographie de l'auteur :

David Burnett has worked in over 75 countries and won many major awards for his photojournalism. A veteran journalist of the political scene in Washington, he has photographed every American president from John F. Kennedy to Barack Obama.

Description du livre National Geographic Society. Hardback. État : new. BRAND NEW, 44 Days: Iran and the Remaking of the World, David Burnett, "44 Days: Iran and the Remaking of the World" is a deep and moving photographic saga about the 44 days surrounding the overthrow of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in the violent Iranian Revolution. With a foreword by CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour and an introductory essay by "New York Times" writer John Kifner, the book recounts the revolution and provides insight into how it has shaped modern-day Iran. Beginning with the first day of the coup, December 27, 1978, "44 Days" narrates the fall of the empire - detailing the monarchy's last-ditch effort to install a civilian government. The book documents the chaos during leadership shifts and the establishment of the Islamic Republic. The Epilogue covers the first attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iran, on February 14, 1979, which foreshadowed the assault on the American Embassy and the 444-day hostage crisis. Thirty years later, it is as compelling and timely as ever and an important link in our understanding of Middle East history. N° de réf. du libraire B9781426205132
