From the Publisher
Annotation In this trenchant and sobering study of three decades of Khomeiniism in Iran, Amer Taheri makes the case that Iran has been literally hijacked by a messianic group who have taken the nation on the road to destruction. Taheri argues that there is another Iran, one made up of people who are aligned with their long cultural traditions, and who are not obsessed with the image of the West as evil. The stakes are very high, says Taheri, as Iran has strong links to terrorist groups and has the capability of making nuclear weapons; nevertheless, there is hope.
Editors Note An insider's history of the Khomeinist movement in Iran describes its pro-war agenda while discussing how it can be resisted, fought, and defeated, in a report that poses an optimistic argument for Iran's potential as a nation-state in the global mainstream.
