Iran has been at the center of the action for over 2500 years, but this zine from J. Gerlach's Simple History Series covers the particularly tumultuous era from 1891-1991.  This 100-year period saw the end of the nation's monarchy, coups, foreign overthrows, revolutions, and its ascent as the world's first Islamic theocracy.  This zine is well-researched and will have you turning the page wondering "what the hell happened next?"  Although it focuses on Iran, this zine also gives some great insight into the Judeo-Christian West's current war on the Islamic world.
