This book—a photographic chronology of the Iranian revolution—covers sixty-four days: from the beginning of the large anti-Shah demonstrations in Tehran on December 10, 1978, to the withdrawal of the Iranian military on February 11, 1979. It captures the joys and uncertainties of the people as they move from the massive Tasu’a and Ashura demonstrations to the joyous celebrations of the Shah’s departure finally to the the revolution’s victory. The book is comprised of 135 photographs by Bahman Jalali, who is best known for his Iran-Iraq war photography, along with sixteen by his wife Rana Javadi, a photographer in her own right, and a handful of others. 

Days of Blood, Days of Fire was published in 1979 by Zamineh, the only independent publishing house at that time in Tehran. This book was Zamineh’s first publication and went on to become a best seller twice before losing its publication license. After fourty years Spector Books is publishing Days of Blood, Days of Fire as a reprint.
