“A stunning guide, packed with history, that no visitor to Iran should be without.”―Christina Lamb, foreign affairs correspondent, Sunday Times [London] Iran, or Persia as it was formerly known, has been a melting pot of civilizations for centuries. The Islamic revolution in 1979 and the subsequent Iran–Iraq war reduced tourism to a trickle, but in the last decade the country’s global significance within the modern world has resulted in increasing interest from travelers and business people. This is an essential book both for visitors to Iran and for those simply with a thirst to learn about and understand this diverse and beautiful land. Travel facts and tips combine with chapters on each of the country’s provinces and sections on Islamic art, architecture, and religion. 145 color photos and 15 maps
