DICTIONARY OF THE KHAZARS IN PERSIAN

In Iran, Milorad Pavić's Dictionary of the Khazars has been published in Persian (Farsi). Nashre Markaz, a publisher from Tehran, translated this book from a French language.
Since this multicultural and multireligious novel (published in 1984) consists of red (Christian), Yellow (Jewish) and Green (Islamic) book, and it has been translated into 40 languages, it can be deemed that, with the Persian translation, it finally got its green, Islamic "original" for the first time.
