With Presidential elections in both the United States and Iran occurring within 8 months of each other, one might expect major changes in the global political environment. This monograph addresses different aspects of and eras in the relationship between the United States and Iran. The major foci will be the political history of each country, current conditions, and the potential for a normalized relationship between the two countries. The model for a normalized relationship will be the relationship the United States and Iran relished during the 1970s. Though not a perfect relationship, it was a workable relationship for each country and was a potential basis for peace in other parts of the Middle East. The monograph addresses one specific area of interest whether there are any roadblocks in diplomacy that would prevent these new personalities from establishing a normal bilateral relationship. The author believes that once both leaders are in place, the political landscape will change, but the unilateral relationship between the United States and Iran will not change substantially.
