A history of modern Iran, and a revealing first-hand account by Iran's first female vice-president, Massoumeh Ebtekar, of the 1979 revolutionary students who captured the American embassy in Tehran. Ebtekar sets out to correct decades of misrepresentation by the Western media of what the aims of the Iranian students and the populist revolution they personified were, and have since remained.
