David Blow: Mirrors for Princes

December 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

David Blow is the author of Shah Abbas, the ruthless king who became an Iranian legend – a very enjoyable account of life in Iran in Safavid times. He also compiled Iran through Writers’ Eyes, a compendium of travel writing about Iran from earliest classical times to the present day.  This lecture will be about his latest book about the mediaeval books of advice written for young princes, Machiavellian style, to prepare them for the responsibilities that would face them.

The lecture will be held at the Army & Navy Club, for members and their guests.
