Length: 171 pages
"A biography of Cyrus the Great (c. 600-530 BC), the founder of the Achaemenid Empire, the first Persian Empire. Under his rule, which lasted c. 30 years, the empire embraced all the previous civilized states of the ancient Near East, expanded vastly and eventually conquered most of Western Asia and much of Central Asia. From the Mediterranean Sea and Hellespont in the west to the Indus River in the east, Cyrus the Great created the largest empire the world had yet seen. He respected the customs and religions of the lands he conquered, which became a very successful model for centralized administration and establishing a government working to the advantage and profit of its subjects. Cyrus the Great has been known for his innovations in building projects; he further developed the technologies that he found in the conquered cultures and applied them in building the palaces of Pasargadae. He is also well recognized for his achievements in human rights, politics, and military strategy, as well as his influence on both Eastern and Western civilizations."

Not a bad idea! But the 4 are on diverse subjects. See the Persian Cookbook deal it's three books in one deal.
