Idea of Iran

Published in Association with the Soudavar Foundation

Charting over 1000 years of history, the Idea of Iran series offers a significant new appraisal of one of the most fascinating, but also (at least in the West) relatively little known, of the great civilizations of antiquity. Comprising six substantial volumes, the series explores the empires which have shaped the culture of Iran.
