Ardeshir Zahedi is a descendant of two families that have shaped the history
of modern Iran. His father, Fazlollah Zahedi (1897û1963), served as prime
minister and was an important political and military figure of the Pahlavi
period. His maternal grandfather, Nasrollah Khan Moshir od-Dowleh, served as the
first prime minister of Iran after the establishment of the constitution in
1907.


Ardeshir Zahedi has led a very eventful life. During World War II, when
Ardeshir was twelve, his father, who was the commander of the Isfahan division,
was arrested by the occupying allied forces and imprisoned in Palestine.


After completing his college education at Utah State University, Ardeshir
returned to Iran to become deputy director of the Point Four Program. During the
tumultuous events of the summer of 1953, he was at his fatherÆs side and during
General ZahediÆs premiership (1953-1955) he was the liason between the prime
minister and the Shah Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi.

In 1957 he married the ShahÆs firstborn, Princess Shahnaz. Princess Mahnaz, the
ShahÆs first grandaughter was born a year later. Although the couple separated
in 1964, Ardeshir still remained a close confidant and friend of the Shah until
the monarchÆs death in 1980.


In the last two decades of the Pahlavi dynasty, Ardeshir Zahedi served as
ambassador to the United States, to the Court of Saint James and five years as
foreign minister of Iran. During his diplomatic career he took an active role in
the United Nations discussions after the Arab-Israeli war in 1967 and in the
preparation of the first Islamic Conference Summit. As the head of the Iranian
Delegation to the United Nations General Assembly, he signed the Nuclear
Non-Proliferation Treaty. In 1977 Zahedi played a key role in the release of
more than 165 hostages during the Hanafi hostage incident in Washington DC.


The Memoirs of Ardeshir Zahedi are the chronicles of an eventful life and at
the same time relate over sixty years of Iranian history.

He presently resides in Switzerland.
