Inhaltsangabe: This classic account of Zoroastrianism is the most comprehensive survey of the religion available. The study's two sections correspond to the two periods of Zoroastrian greatness in its homeland, Iran: the first occurred around 588 BC, during the Achaemenian Empire, and the second during the Empire of the Sassanians (225-652 AD), which long rivaled the might of Rome.

In 1936-37 he studied Pahlavi with Sir Harold Bailey at Cambridge where he began work on his monumental ZURVAN, A ZOROASTRIAN DILEMMA. During and immediately after the war he served at the British Embassy in Teheran.
