'Persian Fire'

By Tom Holland


Persian Fire is a book about the history of the Persian civilisation and the empire that accompanied it, which exercised influence from India to the Balkans at the peak of its power. At the time, the Empire was the biggest ever seen and institutions, such as, an organised and professional military and central government, were first developed. The most interesting fact in the book is that the Persian's world view and religion considered truth to be one of the most important concepts! This book is definitely worth reading for an insight into a fascinating early civilisation!
