- History of Iran: An Enthralling Overview of Iranian History, Starting from the Ancient Persians through the Persian Empire to Modern Iran

Under Cyrus the Great, ancient Persia exploded into the world’s first mega-empire, spanning three continents and over 40 percent of the global population at its zenith. The Achaemenid Empire stretched from India to Greece and from Russia’s southern border to Egypt and the Sahara. It left an indelible mark on the history of Asia, Europe, and Africa.

In the first part of this book, you will unpack these fascinating questions:

- Where were the origins of the Persians? How did they live in ancient times?
- What engineering feat helped the Medes and Persians conquer Babylon without a battle?
- How did Cyrus the Great overpower the entire Middle East?
- Did Xerxes really lead a million-man army into Greece?

This second part seeks to explore the rich history of Iran, all the way from the first Iranian people to the creation of the modern nation-state we know today. It analyzes the transformation of the region’s inhabitants from a primitive society to a world superpower to a country centered around strong religious principles and beliefs.

In the second part of this book, you will discover:

- Detailed descriptions of Iran’s demography, culture, and physical and political geographies
- History of the first Iranian civilizations before 1000 BCE
- An in-depth look at the rise and fall of different powerful dynasties in the ancient and early medieval periods
- A journey through the Muslim Arab domination and the emergence of Islam as the prominent faith
