The Arabian Nights

by Andrew Lang

Baghdad was never a part of Persia, as the Persian occupied Iraq along with other neighboring territories throughout history, but they were always fought and defeated. Now the Persian invasion is again happening on all levels. Neither most of the characters' names in the book are Persian nor the stories take place in Persia. If any Persian has a problem to find real Persian culture to market and advertise, then they can start making up their own history from now with something realistic.
