Persian Historic Urban Landscapes

Interpreting and Managing Maibud over 6000 Years

Eisa Esfanjary

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Organised in three main parts: a conceptual framework; the case study of Maibud; and an explanation of its wider significances, and potential policy applications
  • Sheds new light on the development of one of ancient world's oldest, yet least known, living cities in Iran, supported by highly original and convincing analysis
  • Features case studies with new evidence, which require us to re-evaluate our understanding of urbanism not just in Iran but also in the wider Islamic world
  • Illustrated with many images including maps, plans, line drawings, watercolours and colour photos
