    I learned about Mossadegh a while ago via a writer I love, Ryszard Kapuscinski.  He sounds like an amazing guy.  The young Persian Americans that I know hold him in the highest regard, he's a rock star to them -- even the ones that don't even speak Farsi.

    I wrote a diary a while back for our "books that changed my life" group about Kapuscinski and Shah of Shahs.  In case you're curious:
