    Hardcover ☆ Creation PDF/EPUB ¼ creation book, Creation MOBIPersian history at the peak of the Achaemenid Empire 5th century BCE is pretty neatly summed up in a few lines from our high school world history courses largely in connection with Greek history We hear a few snippets about the Persian rulers Cyrus Darius and Xerxes; a big paragraph about the runner who sprinted from Marathon to warn the Greeks of the Persian attack which wa

    Hardcover ☆ Creation PDF/EPUB ¼ creation book, Creation MOBI Creation is my most favourite novel on the subject of an ancient history and not because it had opened my eyes to some antediluvian clandestine truths but because of its freewheeling stylishness“I am blind But I am not deaf Because of the incompleteness of my misfortune I was obliged yesterday to listen for nearly six hours to a s

    Hardcover ☆ Creation PDF/EPUB ¼ creation book, Creation MOBIAn historical novel of truly epic proportions20 October 2012 I didn't realise that Gore Vidal was what is called a revisionist when it came to his historical novels but it only makes me want to pick up of his books because revisionists tend to give us an alternate view of history that differs from the history that is written by the winners This book is one of those examples not so much a retelling of Herodotus but rather a version of Herodotus written from the view of a Persian For those who are not familiar

    Hardcover ☆ Creation PDF/EPUB ¼ creation book, Creation MOBIThis is a magnificent novel by Gore Vidal I had read a translation of it many years ago However a few weeks ago Vidal was in Toronto and that was how I began looking at the novel again For those Iranians who were angry at the movie 300 this book works as a relief The narrator is an imaginary Cyrus Spitama who Vidal describes as the grandson of Zoroaster Zarathushtra I have to add that Zoroaster lived somewhere between 4000 to 7000 years ago Recent studies are in favour of 7000 including Mary Setegast’s marvelous research When Zarathushtra Spoke So in a way Vidal’s Cyrus Spitama cannot be the prophet’s grandson since the author i

    Hardcover ☆ Creation PDF/EPUB ¼ creation book, Creation MOBIThis is not one of my favorite books of all time but I am giving it five stars anyway because it truly is amazing Vidal's grasp of history never fails to impress me Creation is a long rambling journey across the fourth century BC as viewed by Cyrus Spitama a Persian diplomat and the grandson of Zoroaster Vidal breaks several of the cardinal rules of fiction and the book can seem a little exhausting at times; the lengthy conversations about ancient Greek politics would have been interesting if I had a in depth understanding of Grecian history That said Gore is at his gossi

    Hardcover ☆ Creation PDF/EPUB ¼ creation book, Creation MOBIThis and Julian may be my favorite novels by Vidal not that I've read them all yetCreation postulates within the realm of plausibility a character who in the course of his lifetime travels from Persia to India to China to Greece and meets such luminaries as Zoroaster the Buddha Lao Tzu Confucius and Herodotus It is done amusingly but seriously enough that a reader unfamiliar with the period might be inspired to pursue a serious study

    Hardcover ☆ Creation PDF/EPUB ¼ creation book, Creation MOBIOne of my favourite books on Iran and history I first read this in 1982 when I was travelling in India I had heard of the book before I began an around the world trip in 1981 82 and picked up a dog eared copy in New Delhi It had a profound effect on me because most of ancient history came from the Greek side of things primarily from the Father of History Herodotus Vidal took a different tact and wrote this book from the Persian side of history and rightly so I don't know why Old World historians and ancient Near Eastern folk always favour the Greek side of things there are two sides to a coin after all We don't necessarily need to read everything from the victors side of things do we Most Old World historians view has been skewed by reading Herodotus' historiesAfter travelling through the Middle East in the 1980s I went back to university and got a BA and MA in Near Eastern Studies with a minor in Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies and
