Book review by Rudi Matthee

Full text

1Almost two-thirds of this article is devoted to Šīrvān in the period prior to the Safavids. The part that does discuss Šīrvān in Safavid times is based on a limited number of sources, mostly Iskandar Beg’s Tārīḫ-e ‘ālam-ārā-ye ‘Abbāsī, and Ḥasan Rūmlū’s Aḥsan al-tavārīḫ. In its emphasis that Šīrvān was important and attractive for its many natural resources and strategic location, the article adds little to our knowledge and understanding of the region.
