Description: Iran refuses to relent in developing nuclear technology, despite U.N. sanctions. Rumors persist that both the United States and Israel are drawing up plans for military strikes. As the standoff escalates with no clear end in sigh, historian Ali Ansari sets the current crisis in the context of a long history of mutual antagonism between Iran and the U.S. From the overthrow of Mosaddeq in 1953 to the hostage crisis in 1979 and, more recently, the Gulf War and the War in Iraq, both Iranian and American politicians have forged conflicting narratives about an "evil empire" lying half a world away. Now, decades of mutual mistrust and internal politicking in both the U.S. and Iran may ultimately lead to a war neither side truly wants. An authoritative account of failed foreign policy, Confronting Iran is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand this explosive region. Book jacket.
