No good option for dealing with Iran
Once again, Iran is in the headlines, accused by the United States, France, and Britain of hiding nuclear facilities from the International Atomic Energy Agency. How should America deal with the Islamic Republic? Which Path to Persia? presents a range of policy solutions—diplomacy, military, regime change, and containment—available to the United States in crafting a new strategy toward Tehran.
The Financial Times recently reviewed Which Path to Persia? and called it “a careful, considered examination of the options” available to deal with Iran. Written by “top U.S. experts on the Middle East,” the book concludes that no one strategy is ideal and that all involve heavy costs, significant risks, and potentially painful trade-offs.
