9780985498115: Cyrus the Great: An Ancient Iranian King

Cyrus is among the most impressive characters in the ancient world. From the Old Testament to Xenophon's Cyropaedia, ancient texts have made him to an example of tolerance and just kingship. Hailing from a small principality in southwest Iran, he rapidly rose to power, creating a world empire. The five articles included here, along with the English and Persian translation of his cylinder, provide a scholarly and readable exposition of one of the great figures of antiquity. Cyrus the Great's political career, monuments, religious practices and literary remains are all discussed in this concise and informative book.

Review:

This is an important book: don't let its comparative slimness deceive you. In less than 100 pages, some of the best scholars in the field provide a lively, informed, and valuable synthesis of current thinking about one antiquity's foremost figures. The new English/Persian translations of the infamous Cylinder are not only useful, but much needed. Cyrus the Great has been very well served by Touraj Daryaee and his team. --Dr Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones, Senior Lecturer in Ancient History, The University of Edinburgh
