Fred Sanders's somber tone reflects the complex and conflicted relationship between modern-day Iran and the United States. His precision as a narrator is a good match for the academic nature of this historical examination. Sanders deftly transitions between the perspectives of the two nations throughout a variety of important moments. From the coup in 1953 to the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979-81 and beyond, Sanders shepherds the listener through detailed accounts of the obstacles to a lasting peace. As Sanders presents this balanced look at the underpinnings of long-standing conflict, he comes across as informed and steady, attributes that help the listener process the material being presented.
