The Persian night : Iran under the Khomeinist revolution by Amir Taheri( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who really rules Iran today? How are decisions made in a system that appears so chaotic? Is the current political structure doomed to conflict? This study of one of the most secretive regimes in the contemporary world traces the historical, religious, cultural, and political roots of the Khomeinist revolution and analyzes the way it has grown into a pseudo-religious ideology over the past three decades. Journalist Taheri dissects a regime that has hijacked a nation of seventy million people and mobilized its resources for global "holy war" against the United States and its allies. He looks into the actual links between the Islamic Republic and terrorist networks; the reality of the Iranian nuclear program; the Islamic Republic's war-making capabilities and strategies; and the origins of the three Khomeinist phobias--women, Jews, and the United States. He also provides a set of imaginative suggestions for more effective ways of dealing with Iran.--From publisher description

France - Monde arabe : changer de cap? by Amir Taheri( )

4 editions published in 1997 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Après avoir mis en évidence les diverses initiatives diplomatiques qui témoignent d'un renouveau de la politique arabe de la France (PAF) depuis la dernière élection présidentielle, l'article rappelle les origines historiques de cette politique depuis la guerre, et en particulier les inflexions qu'y a apportées le régime gaulliste: volonté de se distinguer des positions américaines et tendance à privilégier les leaders autoritaires. Il montre ensuite les maigres résultats de cette politique aussi bien sur le plan commercial qu'en termes d'influence politique réelle. Il plaide enfin pour une autre politique qui tienne compte de la diversité du monde arabe et des véritables intérêts de la France, et qui soit davantage soumise au contrôle du Parlement.--SCAD summary
