Counter Praise for All the Shahs Men "Stephen Kinzers brilliant reconstruction of the Iranian coup is made even more fascinating by the fact that it is true. It is as gripping as a thriller, and also tells much about why the United States is involved today in places like Afghanistan and Iraq." -Gore Vidal, author of Lincoln, Burr, and 1876. "Remarkable, readable, and relevant . . . All the Shahs Men not only reads like an exciting, page-turning spy novel, it deals with the hard issues of today." -Senator Richard Lugar, Chairman, Senate Foreign Relations Committee "A well-researched object lesson in the dismal folly of so-called nation-building. British and American readers of today should blush with shame." -John le Carré, author of The Spy Who Came In from the Cold and The Tailor of Panama
