There is a very long chapter about it in The Great War For Civilisation by Robert Fisk.

Cheers, Dr. but I'm looking for something a bit more substantial.

Roy,

I haven't read it, but I know (and respect) one of the editors of this collection, which you should be able to get through a good library. The Fawn book on the same Amazon page also appears to be worth a look.

He's the one I know.

Professor Sick does take some getting used to, but he is a very down to earth guy for someone who served on the National Security Council in multiple administrations.

i've just finished Christopher de Bellaigue's 'In The Rose Garden Of The Martyrs', in which the author delivers a potted modern history of Iran, advanced by events in the life of his acquaintances and key figures from the country's most turbulent events. the war with Iraq is covered over a number of chapters and includes a detailed breakdown of its causes, progression and repercussions, as well as recollections from many participants.

What a book this is, enjoying it immensely.

Anyone even thinking about trying to give Iran a bit of a scrap should have a leaf through this first.
