5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Book By America's Brightest Emerging Scholar, August 29, 2007
This review is from: Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran, and the United States (Hardcover)
Based on exclusive interviews, new information, and gritty investigative work, Trita Parsi's book provides the evidence anyone on President George W. Bush's team should look at to rationally understand why confrontation between the US and Iran is NOT inevitable.

This masterpiece demonstrates fresh analysis and keeps up with Dr. Parsi's proven credibility here in Washington for objectively and (at times) unconventionally calling out developments in the US-Iranian relationship, regardless of which neoconservatives or pro-war hawks might cringe.

Treacherous Alliance is tightly written and readable for all levels of the public who are moderately informed and interested in foreign policy. Academics will mine through the numerous exclusive quotes provided and timeless high-level quotes obtained, as well as the many pages of footnotes (and even leaked documents!) for those looking to do spinoff research and analysis.

At a time when drumbeats by DC policy dead-enders persist for a new military confrontation with Iran, finally a credible, air-tight book arrives to preempt their arguments for the next global disaster.

For those who don't read Dr. Parsi's book, fortunately the major American and international news outlets, including CNN, BBC, and al-Jazeera are on to him and host him as a frequent guest expert.

This book deserves a Pulitzer.

It would have been nice had to reviewer, rather than gushing superlatives, gave us evidence, new revelations, startling quotes and the like, that led him to the belief that the book deserves a Pulitzer. As it reads now, it simply is a puff piece, like the little bites printed to advertise a new movie.

Richard,

if you read the expert blurbs by the likes of Brezinski, Fukeyama, and others its clear this book does not dissapoint.

Achieving 130 difficult interviews alone deserves 'gushing superlatives' even had it not been for the tremendous skill with which the author shares his insights and provides analysis for the geopolitical realities of the middle east.

A Teacher says:
"America's Brightest Emerging Scholar"? Or a well-known lobbyist and apologist for the Iranian regime? Recent court documents (revealed in a law suite) attest to the latter one.

Parsi is such a mouthpiece for the Iranian regime that he recently accused President Obama, the US Attorney General, and the FBI director of lying, only to cover up the Iranian regime's terrorist plot in the US.
