'This book is essential reading for any informed understanding of a relationship whose scope and dynamic will likely shape the political and strategic landscape of the Middle East in the years ahead.' -- Clive Jones, Professor of Regional Security, Durham University
'An impressive work that leaves the reader with a strong and nuanced understanding of the rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and how it affects the internal and foreign policies of both nations... As diplomacy continues between Iran and the P-5+1, diplomats would do themselves a service by picking up Mabon's book.' -- Stephen McGlinchey * e-International Relations *
