Summary, etc.:
Today, Iran represents a threat to its neighbors and maybe even the world. It could be one of the next nations to develop nuclear weapons. Although the United States and Europe have been engaging in intense diplomatic efforts to convince Iran not to go further down that road, tensions remain high. Iran is a proud country with an exalted history. Many of its leaders see it as their destiny to be a dominant power in the region, and possibly a next world superpower. In contrast to the government's aspirations, however, the people of Iran suffer high unemployment, social strife, and a harsh justice system that easily circumvents human rights. This has led to clashes between the government and citizens who simply desire jobs and a better life. Find out how Iran's history and culture mesh to create a country of opportunity and conflict. -- Publisher.
