Review quote

'A well-researched and well-written work that draws convincing theoretical and general conclusions about its subject and will be useful to all interested in modern Iran and its international relations' -- Nikki Keddie 'A new and judiciously argued contribution to the study of the international relations and impact of Iranian revolution.
