Review quote

"I have seen nothing so delightful and insightful about Iran since Terry O'Donnell sadly left us eleven years ago. This is a work to savor slowly, a rich assemblage of fine (Shiraz) wine and appetizers to be taken in any order and at any time. --Ambassador John Limbert, former hostage in Iran, Distinguished Professor of International Affairs at the U.S. Naval Academy, and author of "Negotiating with Iran: Wrestling the Ghosts of History" "A true feast for the senses. Love and Pomegranates perfectly captures the beauty and splendor of Iran. This is a gorgeous book." --Reza Aslan, author of "No god but God" and "Tablet and the Pen" ."..a significant contribution to the literature on Iran. Love and Pomegranates is written in an accessible yet authoritative style." --Reese Erlich, Peabody award winner and author of "The Iran Agenda" "Drawing on the arts, culture and education, this book accomplishes important intervention to counter the fear mongering and stereotypes of Iran that are prevalent today. Love and Pomegranates is a work of citizen cultural diplomacy." --Carl Ernst, William R. Kenan, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hillshow more
