Shah Abbas

Shah Abbas

My interest in Shah Abbas began over forty years ago when, as a young
man just down from university, I spent the best part of a year in his capital
of Isfahan. Its population at that time, in the early 1960s, was barely what
it had been in Abbas’s day and considerably less than it became later in
the seventeenth century, when it is generally thought to have amounted to
about 600,000, which made it one of the most populous cities in the world.
It only reached this level again in the 1970s, although since then it has
greatly surpassed it. But despite many changes, it is still possible to walk
through the great central square Shah Abbas created and feel something of
his presence and of the world he lived in.
This book addresses the general reader about a key figure and a crucial
period in the history of Iran – a country of great importance in the world
then as now. It owes much to an immense amount of scholarly work that
has been done with increasing momentum over the past three or four
decades. This has enormously enlarged our understanding not only of the
reign of Shah Abbas, but of the whole Safavid period.
