Edinburgh Historical Studies of Iran & the Persian World

Published in association with Elahé Omidyar Mir-Djalali, Founder and Chair, Roshan Cultural Heritage Institute

Covering the history of Iran and the Persian world from the medieval period to the present, this series aims to become the pre-eminent place for publication in this field. As well as its core concern with Iran, it will extend its interests to encompass a much wider and more loosely defined cultural and linguistic world, including Afghanistan, the Caucasus, Central Asia, Xinjiang and northern India. Books in the series will present a range of conceptual and methodological approaches, looking not only at states, dynasties and elites, but at subalterns, minorities and everyday life.
