Routledge, Jan 30, 2008 - History - 256 pages

With new and existing evidence being reconsidered, this edited collection takes a multidisciplinary approach to discussing the Qajar system within the context of the wars that engulfed it and the periods of peace that ensued. It throws new light on the decision-making processes, the restraints on action, and the political exigencies at play during the Qajar years.

Qajar is not a Persian dynasty. Therefore the authenticity of the book is questioned at the first look. Please change the title and the content, dogmatism makes a research fictiotious.
