Vaziri in this book tried to highlight an important moment in the history of constitution of Iranian modern national identity. He showed the trend of forging a new modern romantic identity for Iranians; an identity which refers to an imaginary ancient ‘authentic’ Iran. He did this job by reviewing some European linguistic/anthropological theories (theory of Aryan race) and by discerning the common roots of this romantic idea with Fascism in Europe.
