Synopsis

Today's news headlines depict a Middle East in revolutionary turmoil. Iran's economy teeters under harsh sanctions and its people suffer under rule by hard-line clerics. Israeli missiles kill innocent Palestinians while Israel vows to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities. Can these two deadly enemies ever be allies? They once were. Author Sohrab ChamanAra looks past current, short-sighted media and Americans' limited historical consciousness to provide a long-lens look at Iranian history. He recounts the glory days of the Persian Empire, which witnessed peaceful relations between Persians, Armenians and Jews prior to invasions in 700 A.D. by Arabs and Central Asian Turkic Mongols. More importantly, Armenians, Iranians and Jews were each victims of brutal 20th Century genocides. ChamanAra presents a bold, visionary scenario of how Iran can play a vital role once again in forging an economic and political partnership among these Middle East neighbors within the coming decade-- transforming current enemies into peaceful partners in a Union of the Middle East. Sohrab ChamanAra was born in Iran in1947 and graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of London in 1969. After 18 years working as an electrical and instrument contractor in Iran, he emigrated to the United States and joined UOP, the world's largest process technology company. After leaving UOP, he founded CHAMCO in 1994. CHAMCO's core business, among environmental projects, is turning Municipal Solid Waste into electricity ( www.chamco.net ). ChamanAra's dream for the future is to create a town in the U.S. and naming it Iran (www.eb5fund.us). He has written eleven books, mostly about Iran. These books can be downloaded for free from his website, www.chamanara.net.

"A book attempting to survey nothing less than the entire history of the Middle East over the past 2600 years...While the main body of Chamanara’s text can easily be replaced by other, better researched and presented histories of the area, his provocative prologue deserves a reading."
