About the AuthorWILLIAM R. POLK established the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Chicago, USA, was president of the Adlai Stevenson Institute of International Affairs, and helped to organize the 'Table Ronde' meeting that laid the groundwork for the European Union.

Author 1William R. Polk
Book DescriptionWilliam 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.
