Although a fundamental part of the Isfahan cityscape, the Bazaar of Isfahan has never received much scholarly attention. The book fills this gap, relating the present of the bazaar (as it was in the 1970s) to its past, and the architecture and organisation of the complex to its changing functions. It provides documentation of the architecture of the bazaar, while at the same time emphasising the social experience of the complex, recording the everyday life of its inhabitants and users through both text and images.
