    schema:description ""With nuclear aspirations, an Islamic theocracy, oil riches, and a leadership given to inflammatory rhetoric, Iran is the new bogeyman of global politics. Arch-enemy of the United States and bane of Britain since taking 15 navy sailors hostage in 2007, its president Ahmadinejad has been defiant on the world stage, with many predicting a US-led incursion sooner rather than later. But war is not about to break out. It has been raging for thirty years. Beneath the facade of strained diplomacy, there has been a quagmire of assassination attempts, arms trading, suicide bombers, and political manoeuvring. What's more, despite the monumental resources in the hands of Mossad, the CIA, and MI6 for this clandestine war, Iran has been winning. This explosive political tract draws on a decade of research to deliver a hard-hitting account of a vast conflict being fought under the public's radar. With unprecedented access to classified documents, interviews with intelligence agents, and revelations from political hit men, investigative journalist Ronen Bergman provides a gripping insight into the power struggle at the heart of the Middle East."--Book cover."@en ;
