The Risk of War with Iran: a talk and book signing by Trita Parsi
Columbia World Affairs Council presents The Risk of War with Iran: a talk and book signing by Trita Parsi March 13 at The Palmetto Club. Award-winning author and a leading expert on US-Iran relations, Parsi will give a talk on the secret diplomacy that led to the nuclear deal and the risk of the US and Iran going to war as the deal is now hanging by a thread. Parsi advised the Obama administration on the nuclear talks and had unique access to both Iranian and American diplomats. His latest book, Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran and the Triumph of Diplomacy (2017, Yale University Press), examines the backstory of the Obama administration’s negotiations with Iran, and is considered the “the fullest treatment of the negotiations, especially under Obama, that we are likely to get for a considerable length of time.” Admission: $20 – $35.
