Ardeshir Zahedi is a descendant of two families that have shaped the history
of modern Iran. His father, Fazlollah Zahedi (1897û1963), served as prime
minister and was an important political and military figure of the Pahlavi
period. His maternal grandfather, Nasrollah Khan Moshir od-Dowleh, served as the
first prime minister of Iran after the establishment of the constitution in
1907.


Ardeshir Zahedi has led a very eventful life. During World War II, when
Ardeshir was twelve, his father, who was the commander of the Isfahan division,
was arrested by the occupying allied forces and imprisoned in Palestine.


After completing his college education at Utah State University, Ardeshir
returned to Iran to become deputy director of the Point Four Program. During the
tumultuous events of the summer of 1953, he was at his fatherÆs side and during
General ZahediÆs premiership (1953-1955) he was the liason between the prime
minister and the Shah Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi.

In 1957 he married the ShahÆs firstborn, Princess Shahnaz. Princess Mahnaz, the
ShahÆs first grandaughter was born a year later. Although the couple separated
in 1964, Ardeshir still remained a close confidant and friend of the Shah until
the monarchÆs death in 1980.


In the last two decades of the Pahlavi dynasty, Ardeshir Zahedi served as
ambassador to the United States, to the Court of Saint James and five years as
foreign minister of Iran. During his diplomatic career he took an active role in
the United Nations discussions after the Arab-Israeli war in 1967 and in the
preparation of the first Islamic Conference Summit. As the head of the Iranian
Delegation to the United Nations General Assembly, he signed the Nuclear
Non-Proliferation Treaty. In 1977 Zahedi played a key role in the release of
more than 165 hostages during the Hanafi hostage incident in Washington DC.


The Memoirs of Ardeshir Zahedi are the chronicles of an eventful life and at
the same time relate over sixty years of Iranian history.

He presently resides in Switzerland.

2 Zahedi, Ardeshir The Memoirs of Ardeshir Zahedi, Volume I [English]
Bethesda, MD Ibex Publishers 1588140733 / 9781588140739 Hardcover English 514 
For three decades Ardeshir Zahedi played one of the most significant roles in the political history of modern Iran. As a trusted adviser, confidant, son-in-law, and friend, he played an influential role in the life of the last Shah from 1953 until the king’s death in Egypt in 1980. As a diplomat, he twice served as ambassador to the United States, ambassador to the Court of St. James and for seven years as foreign minister of Iran. He has known and worked with seven U.S. presidents. In the early fifties, he was witness and principal aide to his father in the tumultuous rise and fall of Mohammad Mossadegh and the appointment of his father as prime minister. This volume reveals, with honesty and detail, the intimate life of Iranian political society and the imperial court. It recounts in detail the background and events of the summer of 1953 that led to the fall of Mossadegh and the coming to power of Fazlollah Zahedi, the author’s father. Also included in the book are previously unpublished documents that shine a new light on the events. Ardeshir was born in 1928. He is a descendant of two families that have shaped the history of Iran. His father, Fazlollah Zahedi (1897–1963), served as prime minister and was an important political and military figure of the Pahlavi period. His mother’s father, Hossein Pirnia Motamen ol-Molk, served as the first prime minister of Iran after the establishment of the constitution in the early twentieth century. During World War II, when Ardeshir was twelve, his father, who was the commander of the Isfahan military division, was arrested by the British and imprisoned in Palestine. After the war Ardeshir ventured abroad to study in Beirut and the United States. He returned to Iran to play an important role in the political life of his country alongside his father and the Shah, Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi. A few years later, he and Princess Shahnaz, the Shah’s first child, fell in love and were married. The narrative of the courtship and marriage, which sadly lasted only seven years, is recounted in the next volume of his memoirs. In 1968, as foreign minister, on behalf of Iran he signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. In 1977, while ambassador to the United States, he helped negotiate and free 149 hostages held by Hanafi Muslims at the B’nai B’rith headquarters. He presently lives in Montreux in Switzerland and is considered one of the most prominent personalities of the Iranian Diaspora. He has been condemned to death by the courts of the revolutionary government of Iran.
