The first full scale account of the political developments in Iran between 1918 and 1948. The author contrasts the profound ideological differences in the Russian and the West’s approach to the country. The study helps to understand the emergence of a new type of rivalry for Iran, one based upon profound ideological differences and employing entirely different techniques than did the old, imperialistic rivalries for prestige, territory and trade.
