A special section is devoted to etiquette fests, and education in housing and rentals.

The book will be useful to students of the Department of Public Administration, as well as lawyers, political scientists, managers, and anyone who deals with social and housing policies.
This textbook is designed for students enrolled in the program "Language and Literature of Iran" who have already mastered the basics of the modern Persian language. The corpus of texts in classical Persian is one of the most important source-study bases for Iranian philology, and a fundamental study of classical Persian in theoretical and practical aspects is of great importance for the students who aim to specialize in this field. Meanwhile, the specific features of the classical language are usually noted in a list attached to the grammars of modern Persian; there are still no special manuals or textbooks combining the grammar topics with rich illustrative material. Our book on Classic Persian is a guide for students who read and translate a lot of monuments of Persian poetry and prose within the curriculum of the "Language and Literature of Iran" program. It will instill in them the skills of philological analysis they need to succeed in their profession.
The textbook consists of an introduction, thirty-three lessons and Appendix. Each lesson includes a main text (a fragment of Persian poetry or prose of the 9th – 15th cc.), provided with lexical and grammatical commentary, a grammar theme extensively illustrated with examples, one or two exercises on the grammar of the lesson, and additional text intended for students’ homework. The Appendix provides essential information on the metrics of aruz and patterns of rhyme used in Persian poetry; it gives basic metric paradigms for all the poems included in the lessons’ texts.
The monograph presents a scientific, sociological, bibliometric and semiotic analysis of the status of classics in the social sciences of the 20th century such as economics, sociology, psychology and history. The synthesis of these approaches allows the authors to explore a wide range of problems connected with the study and use of the classical heritage. The book examines in detail the changes of the classics and its substantive characteristics; transformation of its body in connection with the growth of scientific knowledge and the rapid increase in the number of separate sub-disciplines, research areas and fields, the role and functions of the classics in the research process and the higher education.
According to the authors’ concept, although “classics” lose their status of superiority over the modernity, it instead acquires the status of “foundation” of the present and in fact becomes part of “modernity” in the broadest sense, and remains in demand, just like late scientific ideas, concepts and theories.
This book is intended for a wide range of readers — economists, political scientists, historians,
