A well researched, well thought out book. Takes a hard line stance, purporting that Iran is a fascist regime, which uses Islam as a stick both to rally and beat its people. A completely different take on the country from this book which argues that Iran must be reckoned with in a more moderate fashion. Unfortunately, if one book is right the other must be wrong, and action that is taken with regard to Iran without understanding Iran may well have dire consequences for the West and Israel.
