First edition. Jacket spine head and spine base lightly bumped, otherwise a fine copy. 2004 Hard Cover. 470 pp. 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.
