Description - Iran in Crisis? by Roger Howard
Since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, Iran has become by default the Middle East's last remaining significant power apart from Israel. Yet Iran feels deeply insecure. President George W. Bush has dubbed it part of the 'axis of evil'. His administration has accused it of supporting pro-Taliban elements in Afghanistan and of interfering in post-Saddam Iraq. Israel has threatened to take out any nuclear facilities with weapons potential. Is Iran really on the way to developing nuclear weapons?; Does it have other so-called weapons of mass destruction?; Why is it pursuing a missile capacity?; What military and defence agreements does it have with North Korea and possibly China?; What is it doing in Afghanistan and Iraq? And why? This book explains the likely course of events in Iran and the region for both general readers and specialists.
