Ongoing tensions between Iran and Israel are highly dangerous for the Middle East and have the potential to spark another major war in the region, perhaps on a much larger scale than prior conflicts. Such a confrontation between the two nations would jeopardize regional and international security, and is of immediate concern for the United States.
In this new book noted scholars Jalil Roshandel and Nathan Lean provide an in-depth look at topics such as Iranian state support for terrorism, its pursuit of nuclear capability and weapons, the implications of this activity for Israel, and their relations with the Iraqi Kurdish region. The United States' role in this conflict is also detailed, including a history if its relations with Iran, policy with Israel, and position as potential mediator. This book offers valuable context that explains the evolution of these relationships rather than simply summarizing the past and present situations, and concludes with thought-provoking policy alternatives for decision makers.

Historically, the relationship between Iran, Israel, and the United States has been uneasy and troubled. While the U.S. government would like to move forward, the Iranians who oppose American foreign policy today clearly have not yet forgotten the events and aftermath of the 1979 hostage crisis.About the Author:
