"[A] painstakingly researched and elegantly written account of the United States-Iran cold war is an earnest chronicle of this shadowy history...Mr. Crist's book deserves a spot on the short list of must-read books on United States-Iran relations." -The New York Times "Crist has written an important and timely book that should be required reading for anyone interested in understanding how the United States and Iran went from close allies to enduring enemies." -The Washington Post "A fascinating, detailed history of American-Iranian foreign relations...Crist is a natural-born writer, and the best parts of The Twilight War are not just engaging, but thrilling." -NPR "This is the foreign policy book of the year, perhaps of many years." -Thomas E. Ricks, author of Fiasco and The Generals
