Painter, David S.

United States involvement in the dispute between Great Britain and the government of Iranian nationalist Mohammed Mossadegh between 1951 and 1953 marks an important milestone in the evolution of U.S. policy toward developing countries. This case study seeks to stimulate thinking about the relationship of some of the most important issues in international relations: national security and geopolitical concerns; private economic interests and their impact on public policy; and revolutionary nationalism, sovereignty, and self-determination.
