National Review;12/23/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 50, p1478
The article focuses on a demonstration by Iranian students in the U.S. regarding the political situation in Iran. The demonstrating students were fighting for a democratic government in Iran. There were significant political developments in Iran during 1953. The government of Iran negotiated an oil production agreement and followed up with land reform and the rapid expansion of education. In 1953 there were only eight hundred Iranian students in the U.S. These students were able to continue their studies only through the assistance of the U.S. because the government of Iran had no foreign exchange.
