For the first time within a single volume, these various aspects of the arts of Persia are discussed in an interrelated and complementary manner. The twenty international experts who have contributed to this volume offer a detailed analysis of their various subjects whole also relating them to the political and economic issues of the time. The book begins with a cultural and historical survey through the centuries, providing a context within which to discuss the arts. It then deals with the pre-Islamic era, from 7000 BC through the prehistoric period to the court art of the Achaemenians, the buildings, statuary, and stucco of the Parthians, and the rock carvings and silverwork of the Sasanians. It goes on to discuss the Islamic period, describing a wide range of arts, including architecture, carpets, textiles, metalwork, coins, painting, arts of the book, lacquer work, ceramics, tile work, glass, and calligraphy."@en ;
