By Samy Adghirni

“Muitos iranianos acreditam que sua civilização entrou em decadência a partir da invasão islâmica do século VII, que impôs a cultura árabe em detrimento da cultura persa”. Revelações como essa mostram facetas surpreendentes de uma nação muito contestada e pouco conhecida no Ocidente.Na antiga Pérsia convivem tradição e modernidade, burocracia e mudanças aceleradas, mulheres com túnicas negras e calças denims (como se vê na capa deste livro). Trata-se de uma nação que no século XX conheceu strong point influência ocidental – nos tempos do xá Reza Pahlavi – e uma revolução islâmica, liderada pelos aiatolás.Os iranianos mantêm os mercados de rua tradicionais, onde se vendem os famosos tapetes persas, mas não deixam de construir shoppings luxuosos à moda ocidental; é a nação daqueles que pregam o ódio ao Ocidente, mas que assistem também a uma invasão cultural vinda deste lado do mundo.Neste livro surpreendente, o jornalista Samy Adghirni, correspondente em Teerã, percorre todos esses contrastes e muitos outros – da política à geografia, da gastronomia ao esporte, da cultura à economia – para revelar ao leitor brasileiro quem realmente são os iranianos.
