The book is written by Safoora Tork-Ladani, a French language faculty member at the University of Isfahan.

“The book studies 800 years of relations between Iran and France from the Middle Ages to the present time, observing the development of the relationship during the Safavid era in the 17th century, as well as the immense enthusiasm of the Pahlavi regime toward the European country,” the publisher wrote in the book’s introduction.

Comparing the 40-year history of the two countries following the Islamic Revolution in Iran, the book underlines the period as “the most controversial part of the relations,” according to the publisher.

“France’s financial and military support for Iraq during the eight-year war with Iran and the country’s decisions favoring the United States’ policy during the nuclear deal negotiations with Iran, are among the subjects examined in the book.”
