National Security and Foreign Policy

  • John Calabrese
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)

They are transnational, as well as inter-state in form; and they are non-military, as well as military, in character. Furthermore, though the post-Khomeini government has sought to alleviate these problems, as during the Khomeini era, in many instances its policies have unwittingly exacerbated them.
