If you want to discover the captivating history of the Afsharid and Qajar Dynasty, then keep reading...

Most people have heard about the famous and mighty Persian Empire of old, be it the one ruled by the Achaemenid Dynasty which challenged the Greeks and ultimately fell to the might Alexander the Great or the later Persian Empire ruled by the Parthian and Sassanid Dynasties which fought against the Romans an the Byzantines before being conquered by the Arab tribes which brought the Islamic religion to the Iranian Plateau. However, after those glory days of the ancient era, the Persian story is relatively ignored, hidden in the dark corners of history. Because of this, most of us have no idea how the Persian Empire became the contemporary Iranian republic. This guide aims to fill this hole in the Persian story, taking a look at the modern history of Iran during which this crucial change occurred.

Through retelling this part of the Iranian past, which was one of the hardest and most devastating eras for the people of Iran, this book will also try to portray the development of the Iranian culture and civilization, exploring its uniqueness and its evolution. On top of all that, it will try to depict the lives of the common population, those who remain silent and voiceless despite being the overwhelming majority. Combing through all these elements will provide an interesting insight into the Iranian past but also explain why this country has become so notorious and anti-Western in the last several decades. Hopefully, understanding the past will one day lead to the healing of this broken relationship and lead the entire world one step closer to universal peace. Of course, this isn't a task which can be achieved through one single guide, but it can be seen as a small step in the right direction, leading to a better comprehension of the Iranian civilization as a whole and its place on the world stage.
