Jordan_Hirsch-small - Copy.jpg As the crisis in Iran has unfolded, one book has received numerous mentions across the blogosphere: Amir Taheri’s The Persian Night: Iran under the Khomeinist Revolution. Taheri, an Iranian-born conservative scholar, argues that the Obama administration will waste its time by attempting to negotiate with Iran under its current regime, and attempts to expose the brutal restrictions imposed by the government on its people and its belligerency in foreign affairs. Given the current unrest in Iran, Taheri’s book provides a timely history and analysis of the Islamic Revolution.
