Perspective on Iran: The Push For a New Middle East War

Weber speaks about his recent six- day stay in Tehran (his second visit to Iran), including his role in the “Hollywoodism” conference. Highlights of the visit included many interviews, useful discussions with Iranian scholars and officials, informative talks with writers and opinion-makers from a range of countries, and a well-received address at the international gathering. The American historian also speaks about the campaign of economic warfare and threats against Iran by the US and Israel, the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, the impact of the US-organized sanctions campaign, the push for a new Middle East war, and what all this means for Americans. Weber’s address at an IHR meeting on March 2, 2013, with questions and answer session, is 76 minutes in length.
