Iran and Iraq: The Threat from the Northern Gulf

Synopsis

"In this volume, Anthony Cordesman provides the depth of analysis needed to fully comprehend the military capabilities of these two volatile countries - recently highlighted by the U. S. secretary of state as the two most serious threats to U. S. interests in the coming decade. In addition to providing a comprehensive assessment of Iran's and Iraq's armed forces and weapons systems, Cordesman evaluates their internal political tensions and civil wars, examining the paramilitary and rebel forces in the region. He concludes with realistic forecasts of possible future conflicts and a cogent strategy for deterring those conflicts or effectively subduing them."
