Iran : empire of the mind : a history from Zoroaster to the present day

Author: Michael Axworthy
Publisher: London : Penguin, 2008.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Iran often appears in the media as a hostile and difficult country. But beneath the headlines there is a fascinating story of a nation of great intellectual variety and depth, and enormous cultural importance. A nation whose impact has been tremendous, not only on its neighbours in the Middle East but on the world as a whole - and through ideas and creativity rather than by the sword.
