Présentation de l'éditeur

All Fall Down is the definitive chronicle of Americas experience with the Iranian revolution and the hostage crisis of 1978-81. Drawing on internal government documents, it recounts the controversies, decisions and uncertainties that made this a unique chapter in modern American history. From his personal experiences, the author draws revealing portraits of the people who engaged in this test of wills with an Islamic revolutionary regime. A page one review in the New York Times Book Review praised it as convincing, fair and balanced. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

HASH(0x97d97888) étoiles sur 5 Fantastic - an essential work 2 avril 2003
Par Robert Platt - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The fact that ALL FALL DOWN has been put back into print is a testimony to its continuing relevance 20 years on. This is the best fly-on-the-wall view of an emergent situation I have ever read. It provides not only a chronology, but also personality insights into all the key players, rich cultural and religious backgrounding, and enough military and diplomatic detail to give it a thrilling quality far exceeding anything Tom Clancy could manufacture.
Brian Rubendell's review below is puzzling, because this IS an excellent inside view of the Iranian revolution, a revolution which could not have occurred as it did without the shortsighted bungling of U.S. foreign policy, particularly by Nixon and Kissinger. Carter's inexperience and bad luck, and the Establishment's blinkers, were also critical.
After reading this book 3 times, I am still at wit's end to understand the Middle East, but now at least I know what the critical questions are.

HASH(0x97d59618) étoiles sur 5 A great book with a detailed and interesting depiction of the Iranian Revolution 17 février 2011

Gary Sick's All Fall Down is a well written book detailing the background and American reaction to the Iranian Revolution and the ensuing hostage crisis. Sick's position as the chief White House aide for Iran during the crisis gave him an incredible ability to observe and document the progression of the crisis and he uses this knowledge to produce this well written and engrossing book.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in this important event.

I love Gary Sick! The book was quite comedic in spots! The last reviewer was off a bit. His angle is just as important as anyone elses and cover the American side of the revolution.

HASH(0x9a906f9c) étoiles sur 5 This book isn't abot Iran 22 juillet 2000
Par Brian D. Rubendall - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I expected that Gary Sick's "All Fall Down" was going to be an exciting account of the Iranian revolution and the hostage crisis. Instead, it was a boring account of the Carter administration's reaction to the Iranian revolution and the hostage crisis. Sick worked for Carter when the revolution helped turn the president's foreign policy program on its head. The hostage crisis more than any other event, contributed to Carter's defeat in 1980. Unfortunately, none of this makes for terribly interesting reading. The Iranian revolution is one of the most important events in World History of the last quarter century. But you would never know that from reading this book.

HASH(0x97e4b288) étoiles sur 5 BLOOD MONEY 2 avril 2008

Gary sick has been the president of " gulf Project" at columbia University , from late 1990s/and at the same time, special Counsolur to Human Rights Watch on middle east human rights issues!

during his " blood Money" Project there was NO ACT of Human Rights Watch against Islamic Republic BRUTAL Murderes . Khatami who is best known as the head of censorship in Iran turned to be the president! just for the benefit of OIL corporations such as the one Mr. Sick was representing.

The ONE who has to FALL is Gary Sick and his gang.

He is a part of the GANG who supported Islamic Republic for more than 2 decades.
