The Myth of the Great Satan: A New Look at America's Relations with Iran

an image
This critical review of the history of America’s relations with Iran shows how little of the two countries’ long and complicated relationship is reflected in the foundational axioms of the “Great Satan” myth. The author explains why meaningful and equitable relations can begin only after the two nations have arrived at a common, critical, and accurate reading of the past.
