Volume Six covers the period from Spring of 1976 to September of 1977 when Alam is close to death. Among issues covered in this volume are the celebrations for the fiftieth anniversary of the Pahlavi dynasty; Iran s relations with the United States; Iran s image in the United States; the campaign and election of Jimmy Carter; the beginnings of what would become the revolution and the Shah s illness.
In 1966 ex-prime minister Assadollah Alam was appointed Minister of Court. He was to hold this position for eleven years almost until his death. Seeing the Shah on a daily basis and being of the same age, Alam became as close to being a friend to the Shah as anyone. At about the same time he started a personal diary which he willed to be published after his passing.
Being a good aide and companion, he internalized the Shah s mind. In these diaries a window is opened into the Shah s thoughts, opinions and motivations. Sometimes through the Shah s own words to Alam and sometimes through Alam himself who anticipated and predicted what the Shah felt or wanted. The Shah s method of information gathering, analysis and decision is seen in detail. We also see the day to day activities of the Shah. On the personal side, we see the Shah s relationship with his family and the court. On the very intimate side, the Shah and Alam s frequent relationship with other women is narrated.
