A Historical Atlas of Iran (Historical Atlases of South Asia) (Library Binding)
For thousands of years, the region occupied today by the nation of Iran has been an important trade link between the Mesopotamian civilizations and the civilizations of India and China. With great empires that rivaled the culture of the Greek city-states, the Persian Empire flourished over the centuries. Through the use of historical and modern maps, young readers will understand how Arab invaders conquered the land and introduced Islam. With a thorough overview of Iranian history that includes a discussion of U.S. involvement in the region, this book is a selection to which students may continually refer.
