For a look back at Iran's international role in the 1980s this collection of essays is comprehensive and generally of high quality. But Iraq's defeat in 1991 and the collapse of the Soviet Union fundamentally change Iran's strategic choices. Little in this volume helps the reader anticipate such changes or figure out their implications for Iran in the 1990s.
