"Lucid and thoughtful... Crist has written an important and timely book that should be required reading for anyone interested in understanding how the United States and Iran went from close allies to enduring adversaries." —The Washington Post

Thorough and taut.
Reminds me a bit of A Peace to End All Peace, in the sense that it helps explain WHY U.S. foreign policy has evolved to where it is today.
Highly recommended for anyone involved in teaching, planning, or policy making.
