Authoritative Book on Ancient Iran 22 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I first read the Persian translation of this book many years ago before reading this original English version recently. This is one of the best books available on the civilization of ancient Persia (Iran). Unfortunately, the quality of (offset) (re-)printing does not match the quality of its content. However, given that it costs the price of a modest dinner, it is worth the purchase. I found it quite informative -- even though it was first published a few decades ago. Truly an authoritative work and fun to read if you are interested in the history of civilization.

In the name of Iran 25 Jan 2007
By Peyman ADLDOUSTI - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is written by Dr. FRYE who has travel to Iran Zamin on several occasions and he has first hands experince about Iran Zamin people.

This book caught my attention on PG 95 that Cyrus the Great name was half Persian and half Luri.
