Persian gardens & garden pavilions by Donald Newton Wilber( Book )

The garden has always had a special meaning for the Persian. The Persian garden, with its flowing pools, fountains, waterways, rows of tall trees, rich arrays of fruit trees and flowers, and cool pavilions, has represented an image of paradise. It was no doubt the relatively arid climate and lack of greenery of the Iranian topography that gave the garden such a supreme value. Persian literature, poetry, and art all reflect this deep-felt attachment to the garden. The present work is both a comprehensive survey and an appreciation of this Persian tradition of gardens and garden pavi

Riza Shah Pahlavi : the resurrection and reconstruction of Iran by Donald Newton Wilber( Book )

8 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When first published in 1975, this book for the first time in any language was the full-length study of Riza [Reza] Shah Pahlavi and his time. His participation in the coup d'etat of 1921 marked the opening stage of resurrection of Iran [Persia], while his coronation in 1926 as the first monarch of the Pahlavi dynasty marked the unfolding of its reconstruction. This is the story of a man who loved his country more than life itself. Born in 1878, starting on a career as a soldier with little education and no fortune, he became an absolute monarch, implacable on his hatred of foreign influence, demanding of himself and his people. Rising through the ranks of the army, holding council with no one, Riza Shah envisaged a modern and powerful nation, and when the opportunity came he seized it--striving to unite the villagers, the nomads, the city dwellers into a strongly nationalistic, progressive country"--Provided by publisher
