Like these recent books, this new volume by Daneshvari (California State Univ., Los Angeles) explores how past artistic trends have informed the work of contemporary Iranian artists. Conversely, these publications show how some of these artists are breaking their ties with traditional Persian styles to openly address the sociopolitical atmosphere of today's Iran. What makes Daneshvari's input outstanding is his formalist style of writing-a close reading of contemporary Iranian art in absolute rather than subjective terms. A more careful analysis of how Iranian artists are appropriating global artistic trends might reveal that their works are not so "amazingly original. However, Daneshvari reasons that this originality predominantly ensues from transcending the Islamic Republic's restrictive institutional practices and irregular art market.

Through rigorous and extensive research of historical, literary and exegetical sources, Daneshvari explores the dual symbolism of this intriguing central motif of Islamic iconography. Research to date has focused on the dark side of this mythical creature, as an eclipse monster, but here, "Of Serpents and Dragons in Islamic Art," seeks to re-balance this. Representations of dragons on mosques and other holy structures, gateways to cities, the thrones of rulers, the wings of angels and candleholders are perplexing if the dragon is viewed only as a threatening or demonic icon. Daneshvari solves this puzzle by arguing that the dragon's primary meaning is as a producer and a symbol of light and protection.
He further investigates the astrocosmological significance of dragon's iconography, its diverse hybrid appearances and the double-edged metaphor of opium that represented both the dragon and the only cure to its fiery bite.
