    edu Autumn 2013 TA Aubrey Blanche Stanford University Since World War Two Iran s relations with the United States have always been a key preoccupation of policy makers and scholars The Cold War began in Iran and in the subsequent decades Iran s long borders with the Soviet Union its vast oil reserves its unique strategic importance in the Persian Gulf and finally its special relationship with Israel made the country one of America s most important allies in the world After the fall of Communism the nature of Iran s geopolitical significance changed The new Islamic government of Iran became a formidable foe of the US and remains one of the most intractable challenges faced by America Iran s nuclear program has also made the country a subject of intense international interest and concern The purpose of this course is to delve into the past present and future state of Iran s troubled yet important relationship with the US Required readings include the two books listed below the Class Reader and selected chapters from my two volume study of Iranian elite called Eminent Persians Copies of the book are available at Green Library s Reserved Room The Class Reader is composed primarily of original documents from the US and British archives spanning the FDR years America s role in forcing Soviet occupying forces out of Iran in 1946 the US role in the 1953 coup that brought the shah back to power America s role in the days leading to the 1979 revolution in Iran and several studies on Iran s nuclear program The archival material is important not just as a historic record but as a window to the complexities of the process of formulating policy A list of important archives and their email addresses will be provided in class and made available on coursework If you are trying to set up an appointment with me outside of office hours please contact Ms Pasang Sherpa at psherpa stanford edu The Iranian Studies Program organizes a series of talks each quarter Attendance at those talks particularly when relevant to the history of US Iran relations will be considered extra work for the class and considered in calculating your grade If in the course of the quarter any new reading material is required it will be made available to the students in class or through coursework Required books Kenneth Pollack The Persian Puzzle The Conflict Between Iran and America Random House 2004 Abbas Milani The Myth of Great Satan Hoover Press Stanford 2010 Each student will write a research paper and help prepare one policy memorandum By the end of the second week of class you will be required to submit a brief proposal stating the subject of your research paper to Aubrey Blanche By then you must also sign up for the subject of the memorandum you will prepare It is recommended that join with other students as a team to prepare these memorandums Using archival material as well as any other data information or intelligence reports you and your team will prepare an action memo to be presented during the session when students will be acting as members of the National Security Team Threats and key policy decisions are to be the subjects of these reports The time and subject of these reports are to be coordinated with Aubrey Blanche Absences from class or any of the sessions will negatively impact your grade Final papers are due on the last day of class Your grade will be determined in equal measure by the quality of your paper your presentation and your contribution to the life of the class In other words don t miss class Here is the general contour of the lectures and your required readings First Week A theoretical and historical introduction Why is Iran important when did US Iranian relations begin why is the relationship important today and what
