West and Central Asia have for centuries contributed to shaping the identity of Europe by constituting a significant other. This work looks at social, cultural and political areas of heritage and cross-cultural interaction. The region itself may be defined as one that stretches from the Mediterranean to China, and from the Himalayas to Siberia, but this study focuses on Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey.
