Dabashi, Hamid

Persophilia : Persian Culture on the Global Scene. Hamid Dabashi. Cambridge (MA), Harvard University Press, [2015]. 297 pp. ISBN: 9780674495777.

From antiquity to the Enlightenment, Persian culture has been integral to European history. Interest in all things Persian shaped not just Western views but the self-image of Iranians to the present day. Hamid Dabashi maps the changing geography of these connections, showing that traffic in ideas about Persia did not travel on a one-way street.
