This book sheds light on the various aspects of the impact of pre-Islamic Iranian literature and culture on Arabic literature and Islamic culture, following the Arabic conquests and the collapse of the Sassanid Empire in Iran in the seventh century. It covers a period in Iranian literary history dominated by the Arabic language, which was the language of the Quran when Iranian scholars and administrators were transferring Iran's literary and administrative heritage through translation of Iranian books into Arabic and adaptation of Iranian traditions and practices, including the Sassanid administrative, financial and agricultural systems and various cultural practices to the Islamic Caliphate thus ensuring their survival in a period of turmoil and transition from the Sassanid to the Islamic periods.
