About the Author:

Amir Taheri has published ten books, some of which have been translated into twenty languages. He is a commentator for CNN and the BBC and is a regular contributor to the National Review and New York Post. He lives in London.



Robertson Dean has played leading roles on and off Broadway and at dozens of regional theaters throughout the country. He has a BA from Tufts University and an MFA from Yale. His audiobook narration has garnered numerous AudioFile Earphones Awards. He now lives in Los Angeles, where he works in film and television in addition to narrating.

From AudioFile:

At first listen, Robertson Dean may seem a surprising choice for this overview of Iranian religious politics, given his precise and clearly American accent. But given that the audience for this complicated text is largely non-Muslim and Western, Dean's sophisticated and well-enunciated narration provides a soothing background for the tense issues covered. These include the American hostage situation in Iran in the 1980s and the continual threat of a future conflict between the two nations. Dean covers the suspicious relationship between these two nations in a professional and objective tone. The intricacies of religious interpretation as well as the controversial statements of Iranian President Ahmadinejad make for a compelling read. M.R. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
