Speaker(s): Professor James Goode

Recorded on 23 October 2014 at Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building

This became one of the Shah’s most successful foreign initiatives. He entered at the request of Sultan Qabus to help quell a Marxist rebellion in Dhufar province. Acting for reasons wholly related to Iran’s regional security, he angered most of his Arab neighbours. His troops tipped the balance, helping to speed the end of the insurrection, for which Iran earned the lasting gratitude of the sultan.

The annual LSE Gulf History Lecture was hosted by the LSE Department of International History, with the generous support of the LSE Kuwait Programme.

Professor Goode teaches history at Grand Valley State University. He served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Iran, 1968-1971, and later taught for the University of Mashhad, 1971-1973. He has written widely on modern Iran, including Negotiating for the Past (2007), winner of the Robert H. Ferrell prize.
