About this Item: Talon Books,Canada, Canada, 1995. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In an age when visual images have become infinitely manipulable, and have thus forfeited their credibility, words alone can convey the multifaceted, fleeting, elastic yet intractable truth of memory and events. Persian Postcards, the fruit of ten years of travel to the Islamic Republic as both journalist and impassioned observer, is an attempt to suggest the depth and the complexity, the tragedy and raw beauty of this truth. Fred Reed went to Iran driven by discontent with the official Western view that country as a den of fundamentalist fanatics and terrorists. Not surprisingly, he found that the Iranians had reasons--excellent reasons--for acting as they did. The Iran-Iraq war, cynically prolonged by the Western powers who armed Saddam Hussein against Khomeini s poorly armed but highly motivated revolutionary guards and volunteers, furnished the most conclusive example. Iranian history, in its meeting with the peculiar traditions of Shi ite Islam, provided a wealth of others. In Persian Postcards, Iranians of many persuasions speak on the issues of their society, on regional politics, on the role of religion in life, on public and private morality. We meet artists and filmmakers, philosophers and mollahs, establishment men and dissidents, women speaking on women s issues and on life, members of parliament and terrorists. Chronologically discontinuous, Persian Postcards draws a deeper thematic unity from places and events: the funeral of Imam Khomeini at Behesht-e Zahra cemetery, the Assassin castle of Alamut, the great mosques of Isfahan, the shady sidewalks of Vali-ye Asr Avenue in downtown Tehran, rural reconstruction projects in the mountains of Rudbar. Persian Postcards is more than a journalistic report, an academic treatise, or a travel book, although it enfolds elements of all three. It explores an unknown quarter, a territory inhabited by people of culture, dignity and poetic genius, moved by forces which defy the impoverished classification theology of.

About this Item: New York, N. Y. : Thames & Hudson, 2002. First Edition. An exceptional copy; fine in an equally fine dw, now mylar-sleeved. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new.; 168 pages; Description: 168 p. : col. ill. ; 29 cm. Subjects: Islamic countries --Pictorial works. Summary: From Africa's Atlantic shore, through North Africa, the Middle East, Central, South, and Southeast Asia, to the far-flung Pacific islands of Indonesia, the Islamic world extends over a vast portion of the globe, embracing approximately one-fifth of the planet's population. Yet, despite the presence of substantial Muslim communities in North America and Europe, the Islamic peoples -- their lands, history, culture, art, and faith -- remain largely unknown, ignored, or misunderstood by much of the Western world. The wonderful photographs taken by Robin Laurance on his journey through the heart of Islam will do much to dispel such ignorance of the realities of Islam, its extraordinary achievements, and everyday existence. Here are the Bedouin of Oman's deserts and the stockbrokers of Kuwait; the dancers of the Turkish State Ballet and the shadow puppeteers of Java; a group of Friday worshipers in Kuala Lumpur and a solitary but equally faithful roadside worshiper in Saudi Arabia; the privileged blue-turbaned young men of Lahore's leading private school and the less privileged students of the Koran at a hidden madrasa in Karachi. The architecture shows equally striking contrasts in the grand mosques of Isfahan and Istanbul, the tiny private mosques of Indonesia and Kuwait, and the desert mosques of Arabia. While the high-rise plate-glass structures of the rich Gulf States reflect a newfound wealth, the extraordinary laval cone homes of central Anatolia mirror the ingenuity of a bygone age. Robin Ostle of Oxford University has written a valuable introduction, explaining the historical background and principles of Islam; the tenets of the faith; its place in law, state, and society; andits relation to the other two great monotheistic religions -- Judaism and Christianity -- with which it shares so many values. 1 Kg.

ISBN: 0521321905. 504 pages. hardcover. Front jacket photograph: The Old City of Jerusalem and Dome of the Rock (Alistair Duncan). Back jacket photographs: Jewish children at the Western Wall, Old Jerusalem (Alistair Duncan); Omani women at the camel races (David Chappdll); The Lion Gate, Boghaz Kol, Turkey (Margaret Drower); Lutfullah Mosque, Isfahan, Iran (Anthony Hutt); Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (Trevor Mostyn); The Riafa Gate, Fez, Morocco (R. Turpin). FROM THE PUBLISHER - The media image of the Middle East today is often that of sudden oil wealth, war and international terrorism, a sad contrast with the image that obsessed the nineteenth-century European writers and artists and an even sadder one when compared with that of the intense cultural energy that has characterized this vast region for millennia. The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the Middle East and North Africa analyses the region from its pre-Islamic period to the present day, from its golden ages to the contemporary era when it is struggling to retain its roots as it copes with regional conflicts and the penetration of modern technology. Academics and journalists who are international experts in their individual fields are gathered in this one volume to study the region in great depth and with perceptive and often colourful insights. The cultural influences of the three great monotheistic faiths born in the Region - Judaism, Christianity and Islam - are covered through all their main aspects such as history, the sciences and the arts. Although Islam has clearly had the greatest influence on the region, the early religions and Judaism and Christianity are thoroughly studied by specialist writers. So, too, are minority sects such as the Zoroastrians and the Druze and ethnic minority groups such as Berbers, Kurds and Pushtuns. The Middle East and North Africa, a region that spreads from Morocco in the west to Afghanistan in the east, Turkey in the north to Somalia and Djibouti in the south, contains many races and many religious groups and sub-groups. However, empires such as those of the ‘Abbasids and the Ottomans held sway for periods over most of the region, with Arab dynasties creating a Golden Age in Spain and the Ottomans extending their rule as far as the gates of Vienna. Possibly the most important element today is Islam but traditional cultural influences are also shared throughout the region. Part I — Land and Peoples — introduces the region with essays on geography and the region’s many linguistic groups as well as the role of the three great religions in Middle Eastern society. Part II covers History from the early Egyptian, Anatolian and Mesopotamian periods to the start of the Second World War. Part III — Societies and Economies — discusses the growth and development of the region from the decline of nomadism and the development of agriculture to the growth of industry, the development of the oil industry and the modern re-creation of an Islamic banking system. The section on social change studies subjects ranging from the role of women to modern legal systems, sport and the mass media. Part IV — Culture — looks in immense and fascinating detail at Islam as a traditional religion before discussing modern trends in Islam, Judaism and Christianity. The section on literature covers Arabic, Turkish, Persian and Armenian literature as well as Western literary and cultural attitudes to the region. The section on the visual arts traces artistic development from ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern Art to Islamic Art and gardens. The section on music covers musical theory and genres such as court, village and liturgical music. There are separate essays on subjects such as Cuisine, Theatre and Film. Science is studied in its ancient and present-day disciplines and the section also covers modern research. Part V, which represents about one-third of the book, studies the modern histories, economies and s. Seller Inventory # z10823

About this Item: I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From their ancestral heartland by the shores of the Aral Sea, the medieval Oghuz Turks marched westwards in search of dominion. Their conquests led to control of a Muslim empire that united the territories of the Eastern Islamic world, melded Turkic and Persian influences and transported Persian culture to Anatolia. In the eleventh and twelfth centuries the new Turkic-Persian symbiosis that had earlier emerged under the Samanids, Ghaznavids and Qarakha-nids came to fruition in a period that, under the enlightened rule of the Seljuq dynasty, combined imperial grandeur with remarkable artistic achievement. This latest volume in The Idea of Iran series focuses on a system of government based on Turkic men of the sword and Persian men of the pen that the Seljuqs (famous foes of the Crusader Frankish knights) consolidated in a form that endured for centuries. The book further explores key topics relating to the innovative Seljuq era, including: conflicted Sunni-Shi a relations between the Sunni Seljuq Empire and Ismaili Fatimid caliphate; architecture, art and culture; and politics and poetry.Istvan Vasary looks back in Chapter 1 to the early history of the Turks in the wider Iranian world, discussing the debates about the dating and distribution of the early Turkish presence in Central Asia, Iran and Afghanistan. NizaAZm al-Mulk is the subject of Chapter 2, in which Carole Hillenbrand subjects this maverick vizier to critical scrutiny. While paying due credit to his extraordinary achievements, she does not shy away from concluding that his career illustrates the maxim that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely . A fitting antagonist for NizaAZm al-Mulk is the subject of Chapter 3, in which Farhad Daftary follows the career of the remarkable revolutionary leader Hasan-i SabbaAZh and the history of the Ismaili state-within-a-state that he founded with his capture of the fortress of Alamt in 1090. In Chapter 4 David Durand-Guedy examines the Seljuq Empire from the viewpoint of its (western) capital, Isfahan. He concentrates on the distinction between the parts of Iran to the west of the great deserts (and in close connection to Iraq and Baghdad) and the parts to the east, notably Khorasan, with its ties to Transoxiana and Tokharestan.Vanessa Van Renterghem in Chapter 5 challenges the long-held view that the Seljuq takeover of Baghdad represented a liberation of the Abbasid caliphs from their burden-some subordination to the heretical Buyids. Alexey Khismatulin in Chapter 6 presents a forensic examination of two important works of literature, casting doubt on the authorship of both the Siyar al-muluAZk attributed to NizaAZm al-Mulk and the NasAZhat al-muluAZk ascribed to al-GhazaAZlAZ. In Chapter 7 Asghar Seyed-Gohrab discusses the poetry of the Ghaznavid and Seljuq periods, demonstrating the poets mastery of metaphor and of extended description and riddling to build suspense. The final chapter by Robert Hillenbrand shifts the focus from texts and literature to architecture and to that pre-eminent Seljuq masterpiece, the Friday Mosque of Isfaha.

About this Item: I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From their ancestral heartland by the shores of the Aral Sea, the medieval Oghuz Turks marched westwards in search of dominion. Their conquests led to control of a Muslim empire that united the territories of the Eastern Islamic world, melded Turkic and Persian influences and transported Persian culture to Anatolia. In the eleventh and twelfth centuries the new Turkic-Persian symbiosis that had earlier emerged under the Samanids, Ghaznavids and Qarakha-nids came to fruition in a period that, under the enlightened rule of the Seljuq dynasty, combined imperial grandeur with remarkable artistic achievement.
