Ervand Abrahamian is Professor Emeritus of History at Baruch College and the Graduate Center in the City University of New York, and author of Iran Between Two Revolutions.
Roham Alvandi is Associate Professor of International History at the London School of Economics and Political Science and Director of the LSE IDEAS Cold War Studies Project. He is the author of Nixon, Kissinger, and the Shah: The United States and Iran in the Cold War.
The LSE's Department of International History (@lsehistory) teaches and conducts research on the international history of Britain, Europe and the world from the early modern era up to the present day.
