In a recent article in The Hill’s Congress Blog, Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar and LBJ School Professor Alan Kuperman explores the historical parallels between the pending nuclear deal with Iran and the 1938 Munich agreement with Nazi Germany that infamously failed to avert World War II and instead increased its toll.

In a recent interview with Austin’s KVUE news station, Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar and UT Professor Jeremi Suri calls the pending nuclear agreement with Iran is “one of the most important foreign policy developments in 20 years.” In the interview and analysis, conducted by KVUE political reporter Mark Wiggins, Suri says the deal represents a possibility that is too great to ignore—the chance for a new relationship between the U.S. and Iran.

In a recent post for Foreign Policy’s Shadow Government blog, Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar and Clements Center Executive Director Will Inboden examines Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy record. In the article, "Hillary Clinton’s Unexplored and Underwhelming Middle East Record," Inboden argues the Clinton campaign has remained relatively silent when it comes to her tenure as Secretary of State because she failed to produce any foreign policy successes.

In a recent article in War on the Rocks, Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar and Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Francis Gavin discussed the current debate in Washington over the nuclear agreement with Iran. In the article, "To Stem the Tide: Nuclear History, American Interests, and the Iran Deal," Gavin argues that the agreement must be examined in a broad historical context rather than through the narrow lens of current politics to assess its value and validity.
