Book Description

This book, first published in 1994, analyses the entire length of Iran’s international boundaries. It reviews the establishment, evolution and continuing contentions over Iranian frontier zones and boundary lines, from the creation of the Iranian nation state out of the diverse and dispersed areas of the Persian empire – a process that has given rise to many contemporary problems that spill over into dispute and conflict.
