Part of our American Conversation series, Kenneth Pollack discusses his new book Unthinkable: Iran, the Bomb, and American Strategy, in which he explores America’s intractable problem with Iran, Tehran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability and the prolonged clash that led us to this point.

With the authority of his years as a CIA analyst and as Director of Persian Gulf Affairs on the National Security Council, Pollack lays out key solutions to the Iran nuclear question, explaining and assessing the options for American policymakers. Insightful and balanced in his approach, Kenneth Pollack offers one of the most thoughtful analyses of this volatile situation.
