    Reset offered a new way for me to look at the Middle East The book makes an argument that partnering with Turkey and Iran makes the most sense for helping to achieve a peaceful solution to the challenges in that area Stephen Kinzer suggests that we also revisit and reshape our relationships with Saudi Arabia and Israel The premise of all of this is based on the history of Turkey and Iran and the connections and progressive nature of their peoples to the notions of popular uprisings, gender eq Reset offered a new way for me to loo...
