Devon (ocarina) | 139 comments I'm not exactly sure what's going on here… Either this is a Persian book not written by Edward Said, or it's a Persian edition with an incorrect publication year:

It says it was published in 1389, but the earliest it could have been published is 1978. It's throwing off book stats, that's for sure.

Z-squared | 8580 comments persian calendar is different from the gregorian calendar and can lead to issues like this. should be fixed now.

Devon (ocarina) | 139 comments Aah, I didn't know that! Thank you!
