Iran. Irán. Idioma: INGLÉS. Autor: Patricia Baker y Hilary Smith. 3ª edición. SETIEMBRE 2009. 304 PÁGINAS. 16 PÁGINAS DE FOTOS A COLOR. 27 MAPAS. ISBN: 9781841622897. Bradt’s Iran has both a cultural and historical focus. It not only covers world-famous sites such as Persepolis, but also delves into the lesser-known monuments and little-recognised figures of this vast and ancient land. Additionally, the guide covers clothing conundrums (women – buy a $20 manteau as soon as you arrive; men’s shirts should not be garish) and taboos, including the intricacies of when and how to remove your shoes. It suggests what to eat and where to shop, including more serene alternatives to the country's boisterous bazaars. And, it advises, should you accidentally run up against the authorities, ‘Women, forget all feminist scruples and cry.’ - Fully updated and revised throughout. - New coverage of Jiroft, an important Bronze Age site discovered by chance in 2000 as a result of flash floods. - Advice on cultural awareness and religious sensitivity.
