Summary

Since the occupation of Iraq in early 2003, Iran has become by default the Middle East's last remaining significant power, apart from Israel. Yet, as defense analyst Roger Howard shows, Iran feels deeply insecure. It is in this context that this book explores Irans' weapons, foreign relations with North Korea and China, politics in the region, and more. Given the regional tension and the overt hostility of the United States , this book provides an essential background for understanding the likely course of events in the Middle East.
