9780143123675: The Twilight War: The Secret History of America's Thirty-Year Conflict with Iran

For the past three decades, the United States and Iran have been engaged in an unacknowledged secret war. This conflict has frustrated five American presidents, divided administrations, and repeatedly threatened to bring the two nations to the brink of open warfare. Drawing upon unparalleled access to senior officials and key documents of several U.S. administrations, David Crist, a senior historian in the federal government, breaks new ground on virtually every page of The Twilight War. From the Iranian Revolution to secret negotiations between Iran and the United States after 9/11 to Iran's nuclear program and sanctions against it, Crist brings vital new depth to our understanding of the Iran problem and what the future of this tense relationship may bring.

Book Description Penguin Books, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: For the past three decades, the United States and Iran have been engaged in an unacknowledged secret war. It is a conflict that has frustrated five American presidents, divided administrations, and repeatedly threatened to bring the two nations to the brink of open warfare. Drawing upon unparalleled access to senior officials from both countries, newly declassified intelligence, and the key documents of several U.S. administrations, David Crist, a senior historian in the federal government, breaks new ground on virtually every page. From the Iranian Revolution to secret negotiations between Iran and the United States after 9/11 to Iran's nuclear program and sanctions against it, Crist brings new depth to our understanding of 'the Iran problem' - and what the future of this tense relationship may bring. 'A fascinating, detailed history of American-Iranian foreign relations . . . Crist is a natural-born writer, and the best parts of The Twilight War are not just engaging, but thrilling.' NPR '[A] painstakingly researched and elegantly written account of the United States-Iran cold war is an earnest chronicle of this shadowy history . . . Mr. Crist's book deserves a spot on the short list of must-read books on United States-Iran relations.' The New York Times. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_014312367X
