Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

William R. Polk provides an informative, readable history of a country which is moving quickly toward becoming the dominant power and culture of the Middle East. A former member of the State Department's Policy Planning Council, Polk describes a country and a history misunderstood by many in the West. While Iranians chafe under the yolk of their current leaders, they also have bitter memories of generations of British, Russian and American espionage, invasion, and dominance. There are important lessons to be learned from the past, and Polk teases them out of a long and rich history and shows that it is not just now, but for decades to come that an understanding of Iran will be essential to American safety and well-being.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read for Understanding U.S.-Iranian Relations 18 août 2015
Par Eric C. Petersen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Comprehensive, compact, and accurate. Prior to reading this book, I'd spent a fair amount of time mucking about on the Internet trying to get a picture of Iranian history since about 1900 and how (and why) U.S.-Iranian relations managed to descend to the abysmal depths seen today. I managed to get scattered answers to some of these questions, but Polk puts the story together in a complete and understandable package, allowing one to appreciate the fact the country is not run by a bunch of mad Mullahs, rather Iran has its own set of political dynamics as it works its way toward a more participatory democracy. Perhaps the most interesting part of the story is how the USA managed to turn itself from a country widely respected and admired by Iranians into the Great Satan after the CIA overthrow of the Iranian government in 1953 and the installation of the Shah who was, as Polk develops, quite an unstable individual who wasted the country's resources to build up his military to a ridiculous level - one sufficient to single-handedly defeat the USSR. Dissent was brutally smashed by the SAVAK, economic policies benefited only a few, rebellion festered, and finally broke out in 1979. When the nuclear weapons issue raised its head in 2002 with the "discovery" of Natanz the Neacons had taken over U.S. foreign policy under Bush and any semblance of "negotiations" ceased - the U.S. demanded total surrender of Iranian rights under the NPT, not something they were about to do. Had it not been for the publication of the 2007 National Intelligence Estimate that said Iran had abandoned its weaponizing program in 2003, it seems it was more than possible Bush would have bombed Iran. As Bush admitted in his memoir, the NIE "tied his hands." In sum, a lot of what went on in Iran and what U.S. policy toward the country has been in the last half century has been woefully distorted in the popular media - and continues to this day by many members of Congress - and Polk sets the record straight , something he can do with authority as he was often engaged in the policy-making process.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Provides invaluable insight. 24 juillet 2016

Excellent book from a highly credible author. Polk delivers on his central thesis: Iranian history is the key to understanding Iran. Only drawback of Polk's book is that he often focuses too much on the historical minutia. If you're in a time crunch, you can essentially scan the first four chapters - you will get the gist. I also wish he included more on the Iran/Israel topic. This is the only issue which Polk insufficiently addresses. Other than those two shortcomings, this is an amazing book which provides the reader with much-needed insight into a complicated nation.

This is very useful and informative as a general introduction to Iran, with considerable depth and detail on the history and politics of the country. I read it while traveling in Iran and it greatly enhanced my appreciation of the places I visited and the interactions with people I met there.

I found this book interesting and I'm glad I read it. . But if like me you don't have the depth of knowledge to judge it critically, a word of caution: A recurring theme is "but alas, they didn't listen to me!" It left me wondering how objectively events are described.

Interesting book. I read it because I saw it on Fareed Zakaris's GPS show. However, I think there are better books on Iran, such as "The Ayatollah Begs to Differ" and "The Ayatollah's Democracy".
