THE LEFT IN IRAN, 1941-1957 THE LEFT IN IRAN, 1941-1957
Revolutionary History, Volume 10, No. 3
Edited by Cosroe Chaqueri

This second volume on the history of the Left in Iran covers the period from 1941 to 1957, focusing on the Tudeh Party, the only substantial left-wing organisation in Iran in these times.

It investigates the Tudeh Party's relationship with the labour movement in Iran, its place in the mass movement demanding the nationalisation of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, its attitudes towards the various governments of the country, its relationship with the Soviet Union and in particular its dealing with Moscow's attempt to establish a pro-Soviet autonomous government in Iranian Azerbaijan in 1945, its construction of a powerful clandestine organisation within the Iranian armed forces, and its failure to use this asset in opposing the coup against Mosaddeq. It discusses the various blunders and failures that had dogged the party over the years and had led to its almost total destruction after the Anglo-American coup d'état against Mohammad Mosaddeq's government in 1953 and the installation of the Shah's repressive regime.

Many original documents are included: Letter by the Chief of the Information Section of the Tudeh Party Organ (October 1942), British Ambassador's Directives to British Consular Offices Regarding the Tudeh Party (1943) , Secret Soviet Instructions for a Separatist Movement in Northern Iran (July 1945), US State Department: Memorandum of the US Embassy on the Project to Proscribe the Tudeh Party (November 1948) Iranian Government: The Decree Suppressing the Tudeh Party (1949) , Tudeh CC Against its Proscription and Oppression (July 1949), Declaration of the Tudeh Party CC in its Own Defence (1949), Tudeh: Dr Mosaddeq and the Oil Problem (May 1951), The Tudeh Against Mosaddeq (July 1951).
