Promises of Betrayals: The History That Shaped the Iranian Shia Clerics

The December 2018 Literary Titan award-winning book Promises of Betrayals demonstrates the revealingly complex and profound caution in the re-examination of Iran as it has remained shrouded in a murky cloud to those responsible for directing United States policy. Fazle Chowdhury fills the crucial information gaps by exploring key Iranian history events that has directly and indirectly shaped Iran’s doctrine while syndicating 500-years of trials that has permanent implications on the clerical regime’s present chronicled driven policy strength of regional influence and expansionism in response to drawing on past clashes with ruling Shahs and foreign interference that once tore Iran apart and one which the Shia theocracy are determined to avoid today.
