About Anne Davison

Anne Davison left school at 16 with no academic qualifications and worked as a secretary. When her youngest child started school she decided to return to learning. At 42 she followed a distance learning course and after ten months passed English and History GCE Level. This whetted her appetite for more. She then signed up as a mature student and followed a degree course in History and Religious Studies and at 60 she was awarded a PhD.
Since that time she has lectured in History around the world on many cruise ships. She also regularly gives talks to academic institutions and groups in the UK.
Many people who have heard her lecture have asked if she has ever written a book. In response she has wrote her first book, From the Medes to the Mullahs, which is based on a series of lectures. Since her passion for history is undiminished, and she is enjoying this new world of writing, she has since written three more books: Paul of Tarsus, a First Century Radical; Holy Roman Empire, Power Politics Papacy and her latest, Abraham's Children, Jew Christian Muslim: Commonality and Conflict.

Review by: Paul Sayah on Sep. 16, 2013 :
Iran is gaining greater prominence by the day on the world scene. To understand why you need to know where present Iran came from. Then to have a clear and accurate account of that history is a must. And if you are a busy man/women like many of us are, the book to read is that short but complete history of Iran by Dr. Anne Davison "From the Medes to the Mullahs". Enjoy it as I did.
