 I found this amazing book regarding the influence of Iranian knights in the early Islamic period 

I shared it as it

1  The depicts often under estimated influence off Persian military during that period

2  The cruel attitude of the of the Arab settlers against the Persian converts to Islam

3  The great representation of Persians in all iraqi national and religious revolts

4  A great number of Arab leaders ( shia like Mukhtar, Ibn Ashath like sunni)  in Iraq championed the cause of these Persian convert's finally giving them a unique sense of national identity which finally culminated in the Abbassid revolution

5 most common reason of their repeated insurrections was not shia leanings rather  Social economic reasons and the political aspirations of their aristocracy

6 hajjaj b Yusuf was the biggest scroundral ever

Was hoping if full text is available to any other member
