Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This well-written excursus on the spread and even ubiquity of Persian writing throughout the world surpassing, Greek or Latin or Arabic, etc. helps correct our understanding of our common history and the part that Persian language and Iranian civilization has played since the time of Cyrus the Great. It's well worth the price and solid scholarship.
