Editorial Reviews


""No topic is more central to the current set of conflicts in the Middle  East, and their resolution, diplomatic or military, than is the relationship between Syria and Iran. While this alliance is, on both sides, informal and calculated, it has endured over two decades of war, in Lebanon, Kuwait, Iraq and Palestine and defied the efforts of other states, regional and global, to disrupt it. Jubin Goodarzi's analysis is the most informed yet to appear on the Tehran-Damascus axis. It should be indispensable reading for all those now engaged in seeking to understand, or resolve, the imbroglio that is the Middle East today.""--Professor Fred Halliday, FBA, author The Middle East in International Relations

“Goodarzi’s book is commendable for adding to the knowledge base of the Middle East region’s most enduring partnership.”--Anoush Ehteshami, The Royal Society for Asian Affairs

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
