Living on the edge : Iran and the practice of nuclear hedging by Wyn Q Bowen( )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the authors explore the controversial Iranian nuclear programme through the conceptual lens of nuclear hedging. In 2002, revelations regarding undeclared nuclear facilities thrust Iran’s nuclear activities under the spotlight and prompted concerns that Tehran was pursuing nuclear weapons. Iran has always denied nuclear weapons aspirations, yet it cannot be disputed that the Islamic Republic has gone well beyond what is required for a civil nuclear programme based on energy production and scientific research. What, then, is the nature and significance of Iran's nuclear behaviour? Does it form part of a coherent strategy? What can Iran's actions in the nuclear field tell us about Tehran's intentions? And what does the Iranian case teach us about proliferation behaviour more generally? This book addresses these questions by exploring the nature of nuclear hedging and how this approach might be identified, before applying this logic to the Iranian case. It provides fresh insights into the inherently opaque area of nuclear proliferation and a more nuanced interpretation of the Iranian nuclear challenge
Triple axis : Iran's relations with Russia and China by Dina Esfandiary( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most significant challenge to the current international order is the growing power of ambitious states opposed to the West. Iran, Russia and China each view the global structure through the prism of historical experience. Rejecting the universality of Western liberal values, these states and their governments see the relative decline of Western economic hegemony as an opportunity. Yet cooperation between them remains fragmentary. Dina Esfandiary and Ariane Tabatabai here address this 'triple axis' in the realms of energy, trade and military security. In particular, they scrutinise Iran-Russia and the often-overlooked field of Iran-China relations. Their argument - that interactions between the three will shape the world stage for decades to come - will be of interest to anyone looking to understand the contemporary international security puzzle
