With the Arab Spring currently in the news this is a timely book looking at the emergence of an Iranian superpower. The only Muslim power to take on Israel and win through their proxy Hezbollah in the Lebanon. The book argues that Iran are a power who should be taken seriously and rather than being treated as a pariah state, Iran should be incorporated in the decision making for the region for example in Iraq, where there is a large Shia minority looking east to Tehran for guidance.
