AMIR TAHERI was the executive editor in chief of the daily Kayhan, Iran’s largest newspaper, for more than six years before the mullahs seized power. He has been a syndicated columnist since 1980 and has contributed to many leading newspapers and magazines in the Middle East and Europe. In the United States, his articles have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and Commentary magazine, among other publications. He lives in Paris and London.
Who really rules Iran today? Are the men in official positions merely puppets activated by hidden hands? How are decisions made in a system that appears so chaotic at first glance? Is the current political structure doomed to conflict? These are some of the questions that Amir Taheri addresses in this riveting and timely book.
