Thank you Lo for posting this excellent lecture.
For those who may be interested Ervand Abrahamian’s recent (2013) book is The Coup: 1953, The CIA, and The Roots of Modern U.S.-Iranian Relations.
On the strength of Noam Chomsky’s recommendation (penultimate video #4 @ 9:10), I for one shall be reading this timely study.
