In recent years, significant attention has focused upon the Islamic Republic of Iran's nuclear ambitions, and the threat they pose to the United States and the West.

In this collection, noted specialists and regional experts examine the various facets of Iran's contemporary presence in Central and South America, and detail what the Islamic Republic's growing geopolitical footprint south of the U.S. border signifies, both for Iran and for the United States.
Ilan Berman is vice president of the American Foreign Policy Council and associated faculty at Missouri State University's Department of Defense and Strategic Studies. Joseph Humire is the executive director of the Center for a Secure Free Society.
