In part four of our historical summer series, we travel back to 1979 to examine the Iran Hostage Crisis. Where is the Ayatollah Khomeini going with this? What are President Carter’s options? And how, why, and when did relations between the United States and Iran deteriorate to this perilous point? Andrew Mueller speaks to Ramita Navai, Holly Dagres, Vali Nasr, and Lew Lukens.
