"Akbarn ma, " or "The History of Akbar, " by Abu l-Fazl (d. 1602), is one of the most important works of Indo-Persian history and a touchstone of prose artistry. Marking a high point in a long, rich tradition of Persian historical writing, it served as a model for historians throughout the Persianate world. The work is at once a biography of the Mughal emperor Akbar (r. 1556 1605) that includes descriptions of his political and martial feats and cultural achievements, and a chronicle of sixteenth-century India. The first volume details the birth of Akbar, his illustrious genealogy, and in particular the lives and exploits of his grandfather, Babur, and his father, Humayun, who laid the foundations of the Mughal Empire. The Persian text, presented in the Naskh script, is based on a careful reassessment of the primary sources. The Murty Classical Library of India makes available original texts and modern English translations of the masterpieces of literature and thought from across the whole spectrum of Indic languages over the past two millennia in the most authoritative and accessible formats on offer anywhere.".

The Jawidan-nama-yi kabir ('Great Book of Eternity') was the magnum opus of Faḍ l Allah Astarabadi (d. 796/1394) and provided the basis of the Ḥ urufi movement. Today it is one of the most important known texts belonging to the mystical and messianic current that became particularly active in Iran and Anatolia following the Mongol rule. It illuminates the contemporary reconfiguration of religious and political authority along messianic and charismatic lines that took place in the Islamic East, which arguably contributed to the rise and consolidation of the Ottoman, Ṣ afawid and Mughal dynasties. Words of Power is the first comprehensive study of Faḍ l Allah's seminal work. Orkhan Mir-Kasimov summarises Faḍ l Allah's biography, charts the history of the Ḥ urufi movement, contextualises the Jawidan-nama within Islamic intellectual history, and considers its lasting impact in the Muslim world.

Mitra Farahani's lyrical documentary explores the enigma of provocative artist Bahman Mohassess, the so-called "Persian Picasso, " whose acclaimed paintings and sculptures dominated pre-revolutionary Iran. Irreverent and uncompromising, a gay man in a hostile world, Mohassess had a conflicted relationship with his homeland -revered by elites in the art scene and praised as a national icon, only to be censored later by an oppressive regime.

Depicts contemporary Iran at a turning point in its history, exposing both an extreme fundamentalism being fostered by its leadership and the seeds of change in its youth culture. The film looks equally at those convinced of a radical Islam and at those who aspire to more freedom.

"Mirror of Dew" introduces one of Iran's outstanding female poets, whose work has not previously been available in English. Zh le Q 'em-Maq mi (1883-1946) was a witness to pivotal social and political developments in Iran during its transition to modernity. Persian poetry at that time was often used polemically and didactically, for a mass audience, but Zh le did not write to be published. The poems, like the mirror, samovar, and other familiar objects we find in them, appear to be the author's intimate companions. Her poetry is deeply personal but includes social critique and offers a rare window into the impact of a modern awareness on private lives. Zh le is biting in her condemnation of traditional Persian culture, and even of aspects of Islamic law and custom. She might be called the Emily Dickinson of Persian poetry, although Zh le was married, against her will. Zh le is far from the first female poet in Persian literature but is the first we know of to write with an interior, intimate voice about private life, her anxieties, her frustrated love, her feelings about her husband, and many topical issues. This volume presents the Persian text of Zh le's poems on pages facing the English translations.".

"Their voices are suppressed, prohibited and censored. But world-famous bloggers Yoani Sánchez, Zeng Jinyan and Farnaz Seifi are not frightened of their dictatorial regimes. These fearless women stand for a new networked generation of modern rebels. In Cuba, China and Iran their blogs shake the foundations of the state information monopoly - putting their lives at great risk. Barbara Miller's film Forbidden Voices accompanies these brave young rebels on their dangerous journey and traces their use of social media like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter to denounce and combat the violations of human rights and freedom of speech in their countries - thereby triggering international resonance by building up enormous political pressure.
