The first comprehensive discussion of the cultural achievements of non-Muslim cultures in Iran. This book will appeal to scholars and students of religious studies and Iranian history alike and will also be of great interest to political scientists and economists concerned with modern Iran. Contemporary political events have generated a strong interest in minorities in the Middle East. Although today the region is mostly identified with Islam, it has been home to many other great cultures, and the civilization of the Islamic world is itself indebted to the various peoples that the Arabs subdue.
