Iran's foreign policy : from Khatami to Ahmadinejad by Anoushiravan Ehteshami( )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 1,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This timely collection of papers by leading academics and prominent government officials sheds new light on the foreign policy of Iran under President Khatami and into the period of President Ahmadinejad. Iran's foreign policy during this period was based on four fundamental principles: the rejection of all forms of foreign domination; the preservation of the independence of the country and its territorial integrity; the defence of the rights of all Muslims; and the maintenance of mutually peaceful relations with all non-belligerent states. This book examines the implications of these principles, and provides analysis of Iran's diplomacy with regard to ongoing developments such the War on Terror, the continuing conflict in Iraq, American-Iranian relations, British-Iranian Relations, European-Iranian Relations and Arab-Iranian Relations."--Book cover
Iran and the rise of its neoconservatives : the politics of Tehran's silent revolution by Anoushiravan Ehteshami( )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the book that exposes the workings of Iranian politics today. The authors penetrate the labyrinth of political relationships and family networks that is the Iranian ruling class, and reveal the forces which brought hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power. They argue that the power base behind Ahmadinejad represents a kind of Iranian version of American neoconservatism."--Jacket
The new Arab media : technology, image and perception by Mahjoob Zweiri( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Arab Media: Technology, Image and Perception provides a valuable introduction and analysis of some of the most important issues surrounding the new media revolution in the Middle East, in particular examining the two Janus-like faces of the new media in the Middle East: its role in reflecting developments within the region as well as its function in projecting the Arab world outside of the Middle East. Topics examined within the book include the impact of Al-Jazeera; implementation of the Internet in the region; use of the media for diplomacy and propaganda; image culture; use of the Internet by religious diasporas; ICTs and the Arab Public Sphere; the influence of satellite TV on Arab public opinion; and the explosion of local radio stations in Jordan

This house trusts Iran not to build a nuclear bomb( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A narrow majority of Arabs reject Iran's assurances that its nuclear programme is peaceful and believe the country is planning to build an atomic bomb, according to the region's only politically independent debating forum. Two of the four-member panel and some of the 350 people in the audience expressed fundamental misgivings over Tehran's nuclear plans, but there was near unanimous resentment over Israel's nuclear arsenal. Baria Alamuddin, foreign editor of one of the leading pan-Arab newspapers Al-Hayat, speaking against the motion, said that as an Arab and a Lebanese she naturally mistrusted Iran. Alireza Nourizadeh, Director of the Centre for Arab and Iranian Studies in London, joined Alamuddin on the panel in asking how anyone could trust a government 'that kills its own people, tortures them and rapes them.' Dr Nourizadeh, forced to flee Tehran under Ayatollah Khomeini for his outspoken political beliefs, said Tehran could not be trusted because 'it had lied year after year' to the International Atomic Energy Agency and because it had clearly attempted to hide aspects of its nuclear programme. Speakers for the motion and a number of audience members threatened at times to deflect the debate by suggesting that Israel's possession of nuclear weapons gave Tehran the right to develop its own nuclear arsenal if it so wished. Tim Sebastian, Doha Debates Chairman, had to repeatedly remind them that the question at stake was not Iran's right to nuclear weapons but whether its undertaking not to develop them could be trusted. Mohammad Marandi, head of the North American Studies Department at Tehran University, speaking for the motion, said the West's relentless demonization of his country had provoked groundless suspicions over its nuclear programme. Also supporting the motion, Mahjoob Zweiri, head of the Iranian Studies unit at Jordan University, claimed it was clear from IAEA findings that Tehran had no plans to build a nuclear weapon and that it was actually focussed on developing non-nuclear missiles
New Arab Media, The by Emma Murphy( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting from a neutral position, this book looks at claims made by Christian leaders over the centuries and analyses them in the light of modern scholarship. Erudite yet mischievous, the book's scope is wide, from early history to the present day, from America to China, and spanning many different disciplines. Many of the conclusions reached will shock devout believers, though all of them can be verified with reference to sympathetic works by biblical scholars and theologians. A recurring theme is that of open secrets - facts well known to historians and other academics in the Church, but kep

The tenth Iranian elections and the regional implications by Mahjoob Zweiri( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in Arabic and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study analyzes the tenth Iranian presidential elections that took place on June 12, 2009, in terms of their importance to the Iranian political system. An analysis is made of: the importance of the office of President of the Islamic Republic of Iran; how Iranian elections are conducted; and which authorities are responsible for overseeing them. A review is also made of the stages of the election process up to the declaration of the results. Special attention is given to the tenth Iranian Presidential elections by seeking to understand the reasons behind the result. Also reviewed is the presence of foreign policy on the election agenda. A further analysis is made of the extent of the GCC region's interaction with events in Iran, and a perspective is provided of the impact of the elections for the future of the Middle East and the GCC states. The elections appeared to be strictly a domestic event. Before they began, the Iranian public gave the impression that it sought a change compared to the previous four years. Needless to say, what started as an internal affair did not end as such after June 13. - ECSSR
