AN AMERICAN MARTYR IN PERSIA The Epic Life and Tragic Death of Howard Baskerville

by | Read by Reza Aslan

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Reza Aslan narrates his historical exploration of the complex American evangelist and democratizer Howard Baskerville and his work in Iran in the early twentieth century. Aslan sets a moderate pace while explaining the religious and political aspirations that were the roots of Baskerville's work. For those who are history buffs, this is an intriguing listening experience about a person they might not have previously known much about--or even heard of. Aslan comes across as intelligent, well researched, and reliable. He is as passionate a narrator as he is a researcher, and both skills benefit listeners. The overall effect is like being in a graduate seminar with a talented scholar. With great dramatic effect, Aslan explores the overlapping themes at the heart of the Persian revolution in which Baskerville suddenly found himself.
