By Kian Parsi,Phillip Villarreal

In 1953, Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi—the Shah of Iran—rose to absolute strength in a CIA-assisted coup d’état dubbed Operation Ajax. As Iranian electorate started to examine in their government’s involvement within the coup, usual people—scholars, attorneys, scholars, army personnel—began to disappear.
Drawing at the political and geographic background of Iran ahead of the 1979 Revolution, this memoir of a political prisoner of the Shah’s regime recounts a soldier’s brutal arrest, imprisonment, interrogation and torture by means of nation safety over 50 days in 1969 and 1970.
