Also ominous is the prospect of Israel launching a preemptive strike on Iran, sparking a conflict that could derail Americas hopes to foster peace in the region.

The Sixth Crisis, exploring the three strands of the Israel-Iran-US crisis, is the first full account of the situation since Obama took office. Authored by two international security experts, including a former senior director in President Bill Clintons National Security Council staff, this vitally important volume begins with an incisive overview of the technical and political aspects of Irans nuclear program, and then explains how Israels panic about Irans nuclear threat--combined with its policy toward the Palestinians--is complicating its alliance with America.

The book also reveals how Tehran is exploiting tensions between Arab regimes fearful of a nuclear Iran and an Arab public that is angry about the plight of the Palestinians and resentful of Israels nuclear monopoly in the region. Against this volatile backdrop, readers get an up-close look at the intricate diplomacy underway to rein in Irans nuclear program, and its ramifications for international security. Finally, The Sixth Crisis emphasizes that President Obama--who understands the catastrophic consequences of maintaining the status quo--is taking a big gamble by staking his legacy on a resolution of the Israel-Palestine and Iran nuclear crisis.

The time bomb of Irans defiance and Israels panic has the potential to spark a firestorm that would imperil US interests in the Middle East and engulf Obamas presidency. With the outcome of this unfolding crisis far from certain, The Sixth Crisis is required reading not only for policymakers, but also for anyone interested in world politics.
