Description
This timely and fast-paced book by celebrated Iranian-born journalist Amir Taheri examines the history of the Khomeinist movement in Iran to show how it is genetically programmed for war. It will also show how Khomeinsim can be defeated, enabling Iran to close the chapter of the revolution and return to the global mainstream. This book is mandatory for anyone concerned about the future of Iran, terrorism, and the prospects for middle east peace.

display_descriptionWho really rules Iran today? How are decisions made in a system that appears so chaotic? Is the current political structure doomed to conflict? This study of one of the most secretive regimes in the contemporary world traces the historical, religious, cultural, and political roots of the Khomeinist revolution and analyzes the way it has grown into a pseudo-religious ideology over the past three decades. Journalist Taheri dissects a regime that has hijacked a nation of seventy million people and mobilized its resources for global "holy war" against the United States and its allies. He looks into the actual links between the Islamic Republic and terrorist networks; the reality of the Iranian nuclear program; the Islamic Republic's war-making capabilities and strategies; and the origins of the three Khomeinist phobias--women, Jews, and the United States. He also provides a set of imaginative suggestions for more effective ways of dealing with Iran.--From publisher description.
