Providing historically-grounded approaches to enduring geopolitical problems.
The Financial Times has recommended Empire of the Mind (Penguin, 2007) by Michael Axworthy (1962-2019) as one of the five key books for understanding Iran's distrust of the west.
Michael was the founding director of the Westphalia for the Middle East initiative. His life and work will be honoured with a lecture from former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw on 28 February
