The volume comprises the entries on Gilan published in Encyclopaedia Iranica, either in the printed or in the online edition (www.iranicaonline.org), up to 2012. Some of the articles have been updated and all include comprehensive bibliographies.The book is organized into four sections. The first section offers an overview of the province's administrative divisions, geography, demography, ethnic composition, and languages and dialects. The second section presents the complex history of the province from ancient times to the present. The third section, ?Productive activities and social structures,? covers the resources, production techniques, and social framework in which these activities developed. Finally, the fourth section, ?Customs and mores,? focuses on the folk customs and regional lifestyle.The collection, therefore, encompasses the main characteristics of Gilan province. Each article has been written by a qualified scholar. This volume is the product of a joint venture between Encyclopaedia Iranica and the Institut franÃ§ais de recherche en Iran, and it bears witness to the cooperation between French scholarship and the Encyclopaedia.
