"THIS little volume, containing a sketch of Persian history, was written with the idea of it forming part of a composite work on Arabia, Syria, Iraq, and Persia. That scheme having been abandoned, Arabia has recently been published, its author being the well-known authority Mr. D. G. Hogarth, and Persia now follows. I have found it extremely difficult to compress such a vast subject into less than two hundred pages, and this must be my answer to those who may complain of omissions. P. M. S. THE ATHENAEUM, 30 March, 1922."
