Five appendices, for example, one on unconventional weapons programs in the region, add to this rich diet of encyclopedic fact and interpretation. The authors define a "greater Middle East" that comprises the Arab world, Iran, Israel, .   The Region's Heartland: Iran and Iraq. The balance of power between Iran and Iraq remained intact until , when the United States invasion destroyed both Iraq's government and army. Since then the primary force that has kept the Iranians in check has been the United States.
