The theme of this book is the wealth and diversity of Iranian culture. It traces the role in seventeen essays of the literature as a social force in Iran, and through this approach provides original insights into the political and social history of the region. — The book examines a variety of topics from medieval to modern Iran: the rules of prosody in Persian poetry: Sadiq Chubak's short stories: the authorship of "The History of Shah Isma'il": available sources for the study of social history in late Qajar Iran: European secondary studies on the Safavid period: Shah Abbas's policy of deporting and resettling Armenians: the conversion of the Mongol rulers to Islam: the Barmakid system of administration: and Baihaqui's account of the Ghaznavid vazir, Hasanak.
