The Crisis: The President, the Prophet, and the Shah-1979 and the Coming of Militant Islam.

David Harris



An account of the 444-day Iran hostage crisis describes how a mob of students, inspired by a then-virtually unknown Khomeini, seized the American embassy in 1979, in a chronicle that documents the year they spent as political prisoners, the contributions of such figures as Jimmy Carter and the Shah, and the doomed Desert One rescue mission.
