Con Coughlin, the New York Times bestselling author of Saddam, returns with Khomeini's Ghost, the definitive biography of Ayatollah Khomeini and his Islamic revolution. More than thirty years after Khomeini's return to Tehran and the subsequent rebirth of Iran as an Islamic Republic, Khomeini's Ghost offers an intimate, richly detailed portrait of the fundamentalist leader and architect of Iran's adversarial relationship with the West--a man whose legacy has influenced history and policy, and will continue to do so for generations to come.
