Losing an Enemy - Trita Parsi

Staff Pick

Trita Parsi, who heads the National Iranian American Council, is one of the foremost authorities in Washington on U.S.-Iranian relations and an outspoken advocate of dialogue and engagement between the United States and Iran. His latest book builds on his two previous works, which examined important episodes in U.S.-Iranian relations. In Losing an Enemy, Parsi focuses on how the nuclear deal between the United States and Iran was negotiated. He had exceptional access to many of those involved in the talks. Drawing on those contacts as well as on other primary sources, Parsi provides fresh detail and insight about the negotiations. His book is important not only as a detailed history of a major diplomatic breakthrough but also for the lessons it offers in how diplomacy can avert war and could help resolve future international conflicts.
