For anyone interested in the cultural relations between the United States and Iran this book is a welcome addition to our cross-cultural understanding. Having grown up in Iran and having lived many years in the USA, Dr. Steininger is well-placed to contribute to the current growth of understanding between the two cultures in the area of cultural values such as nature and religion, and to remind Western readers of the ancient and contemporary connections between our traditions. (Dr. Eugene A. Brunelle)
