Iranian Ways of War

From Cyrus the Great to Qasem Soleimani

Ahmed S. Hashim

A Hurst Publication

  • From Emperors to Shahs to Ayatollahs, Hashim's revealing book explores how Iran has sought to defend itself and project power.
  • Traces the long history of Iran's wars, and the evolution of the Islamic Republic's military trajectory since 1979
  • A long history of confrontation with America, and the feeling of perceived victimhood as a Shia entity in an overwhelmingly Sunni Middle East, have primed Iran for war
