“My purpose in writing this book is to do whatever I can to rebuild the bond between America, one of world’s youngest and most technologically advanced nations, and Iran, one of the ancient founders of civilization. I believe that it’s in the best interests of both countries to rekindle the mutual love and respect that they once enjoyed.”

“Iran and America: Rekindling a Love Lost” ($19.95, ISBN: 0974217204) offers a comprehensive examination of the political, social, and economic history of Iranian/American relations, beginning with the arrival of Americans in 1830, and concluding with the 1979 Islamic revolution which led to the severing of relations between the two countries in 1980. Highlighted are the efforts of great Americans such as Howard Baskerville, who gave his life for the liberty of Iran, and Dr. Samuel Jordan, the father of modern education in Iran.

“I hope my book will inspire the current generation to rebuild a strong and healthy relationship between these two great nations,” said Dr. Badiozamani.

Prior to immigrating to the United States in 1980, Badiozamani served as Management Analyst at the Oil Service Company of Iran (OSCO). In the U.S. he was Vice-Chair of the City of San Diego’s International Affairs Board, as well as Chairman of the Cultural and Economic Interchange Committee, and was appointed by the Governor to California’s Joint Venture Advisory Board. In 2003, he became the first Iranian-American to run for Governor.

Currently, Dr. Badiozamani is the Founder and Executive Director of the Center for East-West Understanding, dedicated to eliminating extremism and violence through Global Town-Hall Meetings, Friendship Camps, and Media Programs.
