Shadows in the Desert: Ancient Persia at War [+]
”… a book for all who have ever been curious about the ‘other’ view on Persia, not from the Western standpoint rooted in Greece, but from the traditions of the Persians themselves… Meticulously researched and documented…"

It outlines Persia’s contributions to world civilization in areas such as mythology, technology, sciences, literature, militaria, the arts, music, architecture and garments.

“Shadows in the Desert: Ancient Persia at War”, which presents another aspect of the wars between East and West in ancient times“

Biography
Kaveh Farrokh, An expert in the field of Iranian history.
Born on September 24, 1962, in Athens, Greece.[+]


Kaveh Farrokh [+] is dedicated to the Advancement of Ancient Iranian and Classical Studies. The relationship between ancient Iran and the civilizations of the Greco-Roman world (and its European successors), the Arabo-Islamic world, India, China and the Far East are a major focus of this website. Civilizations are rarely conceived in a vacuum and are often the result of the synthesis of a number of elements, examples being the Roman Empire, ancient Iran and India.

*****

Farhad Mafie:
"I highly recommend this wonderful book to anyone who is interested in learning about pre-Islamic Iranian history (i.e., the Persian Empires) and how the legacy of the Persian Empires continues in today’s world. Many historians in major universities such as Dr. Patrick Hunt at Stanford University have selected this outstanding volume as a text for a course entitled Archaeology and Art of Persia.
Please consider supporting this wonderful young Iranian scholar by promoting his work especially among the second generation Iranians".
