Discovering Cyrus
The Persian Conqueror Astride the Ancient World
Reza Zarghamee

“Well researched and thorough…the work is fair, incisive, and detailed, and merits the attention of a broad readership.”
—Publishers Weekly

“This is the most comprehensive study to date of the life and times of Cyrus the Great, and it will be welcomed by scholars and the general public alike.”
—Dr John Curtis, OBE, FBA, Keeper of Special Middle East Projects, The British Museum

“Here it is at last, a thorough, fluent, and engaging biographical study of Cyrus the Great. Students will find this book indispensible for its clear narrative and scholars will profit from its rich source materials, while casual readers will find much to enjoy as they set about discovering the Great King's life and world.
—Dr Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones, Senior Lecturer in Ancient History, The University of Edinburgh
