What Makes Tehran Tick by Raymond Tanter
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Iranian regime epitomises a rogue state that engages in state-sponsored terrorism while simultaneously seeking weapons of mass destruction. Considerable commentary dismisses Iranian rhetoric as more bluster. What Makes Tehran Tick creatively explores the ideological sources of Tehran's hostility. Knowing these extremist beliefs is critical to understanding Iran's motivations as well as the potential for success of Western policy options regarding Iran's future and its nuclear weapon ambition. In the context of failing diplomacy and problematic military action against Iran, this book suggests an ingenious third option that seeks to empower the Iranian people for democratic change. Pursuit of the empowerment alternative could reinforce diplomacy while keeping the military option in abeyance. -- General Alexander M. Haig, Jr.
