Grant details:

What Has Gone Wrong Between Iran and the United States? (Review)
Author(s): Abbas Milani
Publication: New York Times
Date: 1/22/2021
Abstract: Reviewer calls book "delightfully readable, genuinely informative and impressively literate"

America and Iran, from fascination to antagonism (Review)
Author(s): Ray Takeyh
Publication: Washington Post
Date: 2/24/2021
Abstract: This review was unfortunately assigned to an author whose own book came out on the same day, on a very similar topic -- a clear conflict of interest. Publisher and author lodged complaints with The Washington Post over this obvious breach of journalistic ethics. Review should be read with this in mind.

The history of America's relationship with Iran (Review)
Publication: Economist
Date: 1/23/2021
Abstract: Generally positive review of America and Iran
