"Armchair warriors howling to have a go at Iran will denounce this book: you can count on it. Those who have had a bellyful of needless wars will have a different view. Going to Tehran is balanced, sober, impressively documented, and rich in insight. As an antidote to the warmongering that passes for analysis of Iran and US-Iranian relations, its appearance could hardly be more welcome or more timely." Andrew Bacevich, author of Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War

The United States and its allies are ever closer to military confrontation with Iran over nuclear munitions, oil trade, and relations with Israel.  We have sustained 30 years of failed foreign policy based on economic sanctions, isolation and covert assaults within Iran.  In Going To Tehran, renowned Middle East analysts Flynt and Hillary Leverett assert that "Iran has become the most critical country in the world's most critical region. Without reconciliation with Iran, they insist, "the United States is on the verge of losing its strategic position in the Middle East, with disastrous consequences."

"This brilliant book eviscerates the American case for continued belligerence toward Iran. The evidence of an Iranian bomb is just not there, the Leveretts write, and American diplomacy should be focused on resolving the conflict, not expanding it. It is timefor an American president to reach for peace and go to Tehran." Seymour Hersh, The New Yorker

"One needn't agree with every word in Going To Tehran to grasp its basic truth: US Iran policy is delusional." Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell

FLYNT LEVERETT served at the National Security Council, State Department, and CIA. He is currently a professor of international affairs and law at Penn State.  HILLARY MANN LEVERETT served at the National Security Council and State Department and negotiated for the U.S. government with Iranian officials. She is now a senior professional lecturer at American University. Their writing has appeared in The New York Times, Politico, Foreign Policy, Harper's, and Washington Monthly.
