excellent introduction to political organization and recent historical analysis April 8 2011
By Robert W. Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Robin Wright and the Int'l Institute for Peace present an excellent book on Iran, Politics, and US Policy. 300 pages contain 50 "chapters" written by a fine list of experts. It is very easy to read, follow, and understand. Each topic contains a nice overview that introduces the reader to the material. It contains very good information on Iranian politics, movements, military, policy on nucs, economy, sanctions, the regional dynamics. It is not inundated with a lot of references on each topic, good or bad. It's a fine primer for use as a supplement in undergraduate courses in foreign policy or study groups. It's not, in my opinion, designed for graduate students, scholars, and topical experts. I would have liked to see much greater discussion on both its cultural changes and religious influences and an examination of the dynamics of US / Iranian policy. It is a fine book and, within its limits, is quite informative. I give everything a grade, and this book I give a grade of "A-".
Heavy with data Jan. 3 2014

It was just a little too scholarly for what I was looking for. It is fully of Iranian statistical data. The portion of the book dealing the the Iranian and Jewish conflicts was an interesting read.
Essential reader on Iran April 12 2013

This book is a must for anyone who wants to know about Iran, particularly its military and threats. It is an essential primer and my only complaint is that some of the topcs (e.g., the military) are quite sketchy.
