of any book that I have read:
'In the wastes of civilization, Luristan is still an enchanted name.'
Freya Stark - The Valleys of the Assassins and Other Persian Travels, 1936.
The Lur men were ordered by the Shah to shave off their beards and wear Pahlevi headgear - a hat horribly similar to a baseball cap.. I guess they now have their beards, but I have no idea whether or not they wear their traditional dress.
The women, who used to have no face-covering, will of course now have to wear the hijab.
