The author was first introduced to Persian studies when, as a ‘Student Interpreter’ in the Levant Consular Service, he studied Arabic, Persian and Turkish. He realized the value of Persian thought in any attempt to draw East and West together. This book, first published in 1964, is the product of many years of close and constant contact with many Persian writers and academics.
