A fascinating study of our difficult relationship with Iran from a former Foreign Secretary.

"A former foreign secretary’s timely analysis of Iranian hostility to the West"

The English Job deserves a wider audience than it might otherwise have received, because it tells the critical story of Iran’s engagement with, and subjugation by, the Great Powers during the past two centuries — Britain and the US to the fore. This turbulent history is essential reading if we are to appreciate how we got where we are with Iran.
