Dr. Trita Parsi is the founder and president of the National Iranian American Council. Parsi, who earned his Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University under the direction of Francis Fukuyama, has written and lectured widely on Middle East politics, and has served as a congressional foreign policy advisor. In his book, Parsi argues that the most important sources of tension in the Middle East are not the conflicting world views of Iranian and Israeli leaders but are strategic and geopolitical; each seeks hegemony in the region.
