The Love of Strangers: What Six Muslim Students Learned in Jane Austen's London.
In 1815, six Iranian students came to London to master the modern sciences behind Europe's rapid rise. Over the next four years they lived both the high life and the low life of Regency London. Drawing from the Persian diary of one of the students, letters of all the students, and other primary sources, this delightful story takes us into the period in a new way. East-West friendship, the dawn of the industrial and scientific revolutions, and the culture of Late Georgian Britain seen by outsiders. Hb, Dj. Illustrated. Princeton UP. 2016. List price $35.
