The receding shadow of the prophet the rise and fall of radical political Islam by Ray Takeyh ( )
10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The tragic events of September 11, 2001, in the United States renewed fears of an Islamist wave destabilizing the countries of the Muslim world. Yet the alarm raised over a previous wave of Islamism in the early 1990s, which threatened to overwhelm Egypt and Algeria and spill into the Balkans and Central Asia, proved to be unfounded. Takeyh and Gvosdev assert that while Islamism has been successful as an oppositional ideology of wrath, it has failed to provide Islamic societies with any feasible alternative to undertaking fundamental political and economic reforms. By detailing the defeat of Islamist movements in the Middle East, the Balkans, and Central Asia over the last decade, this book encourages us not to overestimate the Islamist threat in the current climate and the years to come. -- Description from http://www.amazon.com (May 3, 2012)
Guardians of the revolution Iran and the world in the age of the Ayatollahs by Ray Takeyh ( Book )
22 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For over a quarter century, Iran has been one of America's chief nemeses. Ever since Ayatollah Khomeini overthrew the Shah in 1979, the relationship between the two nations has been antagonistic: revolutionary guards chanting against the Great Satan, Bush fulminating against the Axis of Evil, Iranian support for Hezbollah, and President Ahmadinejad blaming the U.S. for the world's ills. The unending war of words suggests an intractable divide between Iran and the West, one that may very well lead to a shooting war in the near future. But as Ray Takeyh shows in this accessible and authoritative history of Iran's relations with the world since the revolution, behind the famous personalities and extremist slogans is a nation that is far more pragmatic--and complex--than many in the West have been led to believe. Takeyh explodes many of our simplistic myths of Iran as an intransigently Islamist foe of the West. Tracing the course of Iranian policy since the 1979 revolution, Takeyh identifies four distinct periods: the revolutionary era of the 1980s, the tempered gradualism following the death of Khomeini and the end of the Iran-Iraq war in 1989, the "reformist" period from 1997-2005 under President Khatami, and the shift toward confrontation and radicalism since the election of President Ahmadinejad in 2005. Takeyh shows that three powerful forces--Islamism, pragmatism, and great power pretensions--have competed in each of these periods, and that Iran's often paradoxical policies are in reality a series of compromises between the hardliners and the moderates, often with wild oscillations between pragmatism and ideological dogmatism. The U.S.'s task, Takeyh argues, is to find strategies that address Iran's objectionable behavior without demonizing this key player in an increasingly vital and volatile region. With its clear-sighted grasp of both nuance and historical sweep, Guardians of the Revolution will stand as the standard work on this controversial--and central--actor in world politics for years to come.--Publisher description
Hidden Iran : paradox and power in the Islamic Republic by Ray Takeyh ( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Hidden Iran, Ray Takeyh has written a book that reveals how the underappreciated domestic political rivalries within Iran serve to explain the country's behavior on the world stage. A leading expert on Iran's politics and history, Takeyh shows why this country has so often confounded American expectations and inspired a long series of misguided U.S. policies that continue to this day. And yet there is a hidden Iran beyond what we see on the news or hear about from American politicians, one in which political factions jockey for power and influence, politicians fall out of favor only to emerge a few years later, and the hard-liners, the pragmatists, and the reformers tend to counterbalance one another in the government."--BOOK JACKET
The origins of the Eisenhower Doctrine : the US, Britain, and Nasser's Egypt, 1953-57 by Ray Takeyh ( Book )
18 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the 1950s, Gamal Abdul Nasser dominated the political life of the Middle East. The Egyptian regime gave content to Arab desires for greater unity and reduction of external influences. The ideals of autonomy and progressive reform resonated throughout the region that had only recently achieved its formal independence. This was the age of Nasserism as Egypt embodied the Arab nationalists' hopes and calls for the construction of a new society. No one understood the power and appeal of Egypt better than President Dwight Eisenhower. Employing many declassified American and British documents, Takeyh examines the intricate containment policy. Along this path, Takeyh sketches Eisenhower's attempt to reconcile the demands of Britain's imperial strategies with the Arab decolonization movements. Contributing to the evolving 'Eisenhower revisionist' scholarship, Takeyh portrays a president in command of American policy as it sought to contain the Soviet moves in the Middle East, resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict and ultimately resuscitate Western influence in the Middle East in the aftermath of the Suez crisis

The self-limiting success of Iran sanctions by Ray Takeyh ( )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Economic sanctions have often been considered an important tool for disciplining adversaries and compelling them to offer important concessions. History, however, suggests otherwise. Economic penalties rarely cause states to abandon important national assets. After decades of struggling under punitive financial measures, Iran has persisted with its objectionable policies ranging from terrorism to proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. All this suggests that ideological regimes that put a premium on their political priorities and which are seemingly insensitive to the mounting costs of their belligerence may not be suitable candidates for the type of cost-benefit analysis that sanctions diplomacy invites."--Editor
