Summary
Challenging the daily clamor of U.S. saber rattling, the authors argue that America should renounce thirty years of failed strategy and engage with Iran, just as Nixon revolutionized U.S. foreign policy by going to Beijing and realigning relations with China. Drawing on years of research and access to high-level officials, this book explains how Iran sees the world and why its approach to foreign policy is hardly the irrational behavior of a rogue nation
