Nasr's presents a truly erudite view on the gestalt of Persia--purposeful omission of the Shah's renaming from German influence. Highly recommended. This work gleans the current challenges of the country: power, theocracy, religion, pragmatism, hubris, intellect, and fear . This with the Persian Puzzle, Pollack, Victor Hanson's Culture and Carnage, Rupert Smith's The Utility of Force, and Margaret MacMillan's Paris 1919 will provide you with a newfound appreciation for the trials and tribulations fraught with both trepidation and intrepediation, missteps, and miscommunications. The country is no longer uneducated and lemmings.
This book is more like a history lesson. There is little information about the rise of Muslim middle class. Dubai and Turkey are the only good chapters.
