Esther's Children: A Portrait of Iranian Jews
I. B. Tauris, Limited, 2003 - Iran - 480 pages
Since their liberation from Babylonian captivity by the Persian king Cyrus the Great in the 6th century B.C., the story of Iran's Jews has been a fascinating but little-known element of the patchwork history of the Middle East. Esther's Children covers every aspect of this ancient family of Jews, tracing it from the Achaemenid Empire to the diaspora of 1979.
