Format: Paperback
I was quite impressed by the scholarly nature of this book. Warwick Ball goes beyond a dry historical narrative of who, what and where to provide an analysis of how the Persians influenced the West. In fact, he argues that the concept of east vs. west is an erroneous one and that the Persians were the first to introduce the idea of a single universal world. Clearly, the author's forty years of experience and facts taken from various disciplines such as history, archaeology, theology and philosophy have lent him a unique and valuable perspective. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the history of this region but more importantly to anyone who needs to have an in depth analysis of the Persian way of looking at the world that is current and still valid, including historians, political strategists or anthropologist.
