More > accomplished for Ancient Egypt. Assuming the interpretation of the historical inscriptions as, in general, sufficiently ascertained, and the various ancient remains as assigned on sufficient grounds to certain peoples and epochs, they seek to unite with our previous knowledge of the five nations, whether derived from Biblical or classical sources, the new information obtained from modern discovery. They address themselves in a great measure to the eye; and it is hoped that even those who doubt the certainty of the linguistic discoveries in which the author believes, will admit the advantage of illustrating the life of the ancient peoples by representations of their productions.”< Less

The results were published in Eine Frau fährt um die Welt (3 vols., Vienna, 1850; English translation: A Woman's Journey round the World, London, 1854). I have been called, in many of the public journals, a “professed tourist;” but I am sorry to say that I have no title to the appellation in its usual sense. On the one hand I possess too little wit and humour to render my writings amusing; and, on the other, too little knowledge to judge rightly of what I have gone through. The only gift to which I can lay claim is that of narrating in a simple manner the different scenes in which I have played a part...< Less

Hence this book endeavours to improve public policy in Iran – also in view of the utterly failed 1979 Revolution in Iran – so that basic human rights and human dignity can be restored in Persia... It should also be noted, that the Judicial system of Iran – under Chief Justice Ebrahim Raisi and Justice Minister Alireza Avayi – is an utterly incompetent legal community, guilty of blatant human rights violations in Persia; and hence a disgrace to the legal fraternity.< Less
