1 - 2 weeks availability


This timely collection of papers by leading academics and prominent government officials sheds new light on the for-eign policy of Iran under President Khatami and into the period of President Ahmadinejad. Iran's foreign policy during this period was based on four fundamental principles: the rejection of all forms of foreign domination; the preservation of the independence of the country and its territorial integrity; the defence of the rights of all Muslims; and the maintenance of mutually peaceful relations with all non-belligerent states. This book examines the implications of these principles, and provides analysis of Iran's diplomacy with regard to ongoing developments such as the War on Terror, the con-tinuing conflict in Iraq, American - Iranian relations, British - Iranian relations, European - Iranian relations and Arab - Iranian relations.
