Perhaps you have heard the name Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the news many times, but have no idea who he is, where he comes from and why we hear about him so often. He is the president of Iran and according to this book, "the histories of the United States and Iran are thickly entangled." One of the many things we often hear about are stories about Shiite and Sunni Muslims. In the history section of this book, we are told the difference. In addition to a brief history of Iran we also learn about its former leadership.

Mahmoud was born in 1956 in the small village of Garmsar. He was a very bright student who went on to be a civil engineering student, but he was also very interested in politics. During times of political unrest Mahmoud listened and learned. It is a topic of debate whether or not he was a participant in the American hostage crisis. In 1980 Ahmadinejad's role in politics began to spiral upwards. Chapters in this book include: Persian and Iranian History, Ahmadinejad and the Iranian Revolution, The Iran-Iraq War, The Iranian System of Government, Ahmadinejad Rises to Power and Ahmadinejad and Iran's Nuclear Program.

This is a very interesting, comprehensive and well written young adult biography of Ahmadinejad. In the back of the book there is a nice timeline of his life, a glossary, additional recommended sources of information (including physical addresses and web sites), a thorough bibliography and index. As the Broyles states in the last chapter, "When the history of the twenty-first century is written, the name Ahmadinejad will undoubtedly be featured prominently." This is a man young people need to acquaint themselves within their studies.
