We are pleased to launch our new blog, www.GoingtoTehran.com. Going to Tehran is very much a continuation of our previous blog, www.RaceForIran.com. (Race for Iran will remain active as a repository for our previous posts, with comments, going all the way back to October 2009.) But Going to Tehran represents a new focus in our work, a focus reflected as well in our new book of the same title (to be published January 8, 2013): Going to Tehran: Why the United States Must Come to Terms with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The next six-to-twenty-four months are likely to be an extremely consequential period for U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran. We want both our new book and this blog to make the most constructive contribution possible to American and international discussion of how Washington should deal with Tehran. We invite all to join the conversation.
To get the New Year off to a good start, we are also pleased to note that Foreign Policy selected Going to Tehran as a top recommended book in its “What to Read in 2013” list, see here.
