When the late Hugo Chavez proclaimed Venezuela's 'Axis of Unity' with Iran in July 2006, many western intelligence agencies did not take him seriously. Eight years later, this union has enabled Iran's feared Revolutionary Guards and other military and intelligence assets to have a robust presence in the Western Hemisphere. Sadly, the majority of Latin Americans are still ignorant of this threat that Joseph Humire and Ilan Berman present in this important and timely book. Hopefully, this will serve as a wake-up call to my fellow countrymen. -- Diego E. Arria, former president of the United Nations Security Council and presidential candidate in Venezuela There is a lot going on in Latin America that is having and will continue to have a significant political and security impact on the region-and the United States. One extremely important issue centers on Iran's (and Hezbollah's) covert activities. Joseph Humire and Ilan Berman have brought together an impressive array of authorities who spell out the complexity and relevance of Iran's covert efforts in the Americas. This book should be required reading for anyone in the Western Hemisphere concerned with the security and well-being of themselves, their children, and their grandchildren. -- Max G. Manwaring, Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War CollegeFrom the Publisher:
In recent years, significant attention has focused upon the Islamic Republic of Iran's nuclear ambitions, and the threat they pose to the United States and the West. Far less well understood, however, has been the phenomenon of Iran's regional advance in America's own Hemisphere-an intrusion that has both foreign policy and national security implications for the United States and its allies. In this collection, noted specialists and regional experts examine the various facets of Iran's contemporary presence in Central and South America, and detail what the Islamic Republic's growing geopolitical footprint south of the U.S. border signifies, both for Iran and for the United States.
