This book is a veritable magnum opus covering the Pre-Islamic to the Firdausi periods, including mysticism. The author has made a splendidly thorough study of the subject, basing his conclusions on source material spread over a vast era of almost two millennia. This book will be interesting and useful both to those who have no previous knowledge of Persian culture and history as well as to those who are already well versed in these subjects.
