Promotional Information

The Sasanians were the last of the ancient Persian dynasties, and the largest empire to espouse Zoroastrianism, before the encounter with the Arabs swept away the pre-Islamic institutions. In this clear and comprehensive book, Touraj Daryaee provides an unrivalled account of Sasanian Persia.

'Touraj Daryaee synthesizes a new generation of Sasanian scholarship to present the first single volume study of such important history-important not only for understanding Iranian,but Roman and early Islamic histories as well.' Gene Garthwaite, Professor of History,and Jane and Raphael Bernstein Professor of Asian Studies,Dartmouth College, New Hampshire 'Touraj Daryaee is a well-known scholar of Sasanian history and religious texts who knows the subject well and has published widely in his field. This will be a useful publication for scholars and everyone interested in Sasanian history.' Vesta Sarkhosh Curtis,Curator,The British Museum 'Touraj Daryaee's Sasanian Persia is far more detailed than all previous work on the subject,with a multitude of new materials and sources.It is a masterpiece of research and will be the last word on Sasanian Iran in all of its aspects-from political history to religion, society and commerce.' Richard N. Frye,Emeritus Professor of Iranian Studies,Harvard University 'The publication of Touraj Daryaee's book is a cause for much satisfaction. He is a leading scholar of his subject,which he tackles very successfully.' David Morgan,Emeritus Professor of History,University of Wisconsin
