Alexander the not so Great: History through Persian Eyes
Interesting story about how differently Alexander the Great is perceived in Iran than in Greek influenced Western history books. "Indeed," the author argues, "reading some Western history books one might be forgiven for thinking that the Persians existed to be conquered by Alexander." But that, of course, is not true and the author provides ample evidence to prove it.
