Sarkhosh Curtis, Vesta and Stewart, Sarah, eds. (2005) The Birth of the Persian Empire. London: I.B. Tauris. (The Idea of Iran)
This book explores the formation of the first Persian Empire under the Achaemenid Persians. It brings together a multi-disciplinary view of ancient Iran in the first millennium BC and concentrates on the art, archaeology, history and religion of a geographical area far beyond the present borders of modern Iran. It deals with the period just before the formation of the Persian empire in the middle of the 6th century up to its collapse following conquest by Alexander the Great in the late 4th century B.C.
