The Twilight War
Available in Stock
Described by The New York Times as 'painstakingly researched and elegantly written', this history draws on newly declassified documents and access to senior officials from both countries to trace the development of the cold war between Iran and the USA, from the hostage crisis of 1979–1981 to Iran's nuclear programme. Crist reveals how the conflict has frustrated five American presidents, divided administrations and frequently brought the two nations to the brink of open warfare.
