Less than a decade after Washington endorsed a fraudulent case for invading Iraq, similarly misinformed and politically motivated claims are pushing America toward war with Iran. Challenging the daily clamor of American saber rattling, Flynt and Hillary Mann Leverett argue that America should renounce thirty years of failed politics, diplomacy and strategy and engage with Iran--just as Nixon revolutionized U.S. foreign policy by going to Beijing and realigning relations with China.

In Going to Tehran, former analysts in both the Bush and Clinton administrations, the Leveretts offer a uniquely informed account of Iran as it actually is today, not as many have caricatured it or wished it to be. They show that Irans political order is not on the verge of collapse, that most Iranians still support the Islamic Republic, and that Irans regional influence makes it critical to progress in the Middle East. Drawing on years of research and access to high-level officials, the Leveretts indispensable work makes it clear that America must go to Tehran if it is to avert strategic catastrophe.
