Read Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran, and the Triumph of Diplomacy Online Free - This timely book focuses on President Obama’s deeply considered strategy toward Iran’s nuclear program and reveals how the historic agreement of 2015 broke the persistent stalemate in negotiations that had blocked earlier efforts.
The deal accomplished two major feats in one stroke: it averted the threat of war with Iran and prevented the possibility of an Iranian nuclear bomb. Tria Parsi, a Middle East foreign policy expert who advised the Obama White House throughout the talks and had access to decision-makers and diplomats on the U.S. and Iranian sides alike, examines every facet of a triumph that could become as important and consequential as Nixon’s rapprochement with China. Drawing from more than seventy-five in-depth interviews with key decision-makers, including Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, this is the first authoritative account of President Obama’s signature foreign policy achievement.

Reading this book, it's impossible to not develop an appreciation for the effort American diplomats, led by John Kerry, put forth in order to end the Iranian nuclear weapons program. The sanctions put in place by the Obama Administration succeeded in driving Iran to the table, but it was the acce...

One of the few books to definitively change my worldview, in this case, on American foreign policy in the Middle East. Reading this book and "The Battle for Syria" by Christopher Phillips has turned this formerly-hawkish interventionist into someone who strongly believes that America's interests...
