At a time when most Westerners fled the carnage in Iran, David Burnett stayed and documented the sudden fall of the Shah and the birth of the Islamic Republic.

44 Days re-creates the coup that led to the long U.S. hostage crisis, President Carter's political demise, and an enmity still blazing after thirty years.

Filled with powerful insights into the revolution and its pertinence today, this book is for history and current affairs buffs, photography lovers, and everyone interested in the clash of Islamic fundamentalism and the West.
