In the Name of God: The Khomeini

Robin Wright, Author Touchstone Books $10.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-72511-2
This work, which PW judged a ``brisk refresher course on Iranian history under Khomeini and his successors,'' suggests that the Ayatollah's regime was one of constant diversionary tactics. The takeover of the American Embassy and holding of hostages, the terrorist bombings, the war with Iraq--these events shifted the Islamic Republic's attention away from pressing social and economic needs at home.
