Illustrated dust jacket. Trace of foxing to the top and front edges of the text block, no other damage to describe. This volume is a unique investigation of contemporary Jewish life in a Muslim country and the first ethnography of the Persian-Jewish diaspora, giving the reader a deep appreciation of this relatively unknown culture. The author describes in detail traditional Jewish life in the provincial city of Shiraz and the challenges of coexistence with a Muslim majority. The book is an extensively revised version of a Ph.D. dissertation that the author wrote in 1970. The author by means of description and analysis endeavours to penetrate and understand the world of the Oriental Jews. Living informants are referred to throughout by pseudonyms. Only historical figures or those whose identities could not possibly be hid in any way, are referred to by their real names. -- From the front fold over blurb and page XIX Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
