Iran and the West: A Critical Bibliography

By Cyrus Ghani

Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1987, 967 pp.

This weighty bibliography, including everything from multivolume histories to newspaper articles, lists over 4,000 publications in Western languages dealing with (or having some connection with) the history, politics, economy, culture, literature and art of Iran. It has obvious value as a work of reference, but is notable for the comments-often biting-that accompany each item.
