Hegemony and border tensions: The mystery of the Persian Gulf (Paperback)
It can be said that there is an interrelationship between hegemony and border tensions in the way that the establishment of hegemony for the regional and universal powers rests on overcoming environmental obstacles and border tensions. On the other hand, once a country's hegemony is established, border tensions will be minimized in its region. The Islamic Republic of Iran is a potential power with the highest probability of achieving hegemony in the region as it owns the material requirements in western Asia. The border tensions between neighboring countries as well as the rivalry have increased the incessant tensions. In contrast to the previous decades, Iran has been able to successfully drive all the border tensions out of its border, which can result in the establishment of Iran's hegemony, along with cultural influence and material possessions. However, there are some hurdles to this achievement, one of which is the alliance of Arab countries. This book also examines the aspects of disagreement and tension among Arab countries along the Persian Gulf.
