Baguirov, Adil. Appropriation of cultural and historical heritage of Azerbaijan by Iranian and Armenian governments: example of great Azerbaijani poet Nizami Ganjavi (Nezami from Ganjeh), April-May 2006 (updated December 2006, July 2010), January 5th, 2010 (URL: http://www.zerbaijan.com/NizamiGanjavi.htm) (On one side, what allows for recognizing Nizami as a great Azerbaijani poet, is the fact that he was born, lived, created his masterpieces and even died and was buried particularly in Azerbaijan (even then the state was officially called the Azerbaijani State of Atabeks) in the city of Ganja, the city which without any doubt, from historical point of view of course, was/is one of Azerbaijani State entities. Furthermore, based on scholarly research, a concept of Azerbaijan applied to the maps, can be quite legitimately used in reference to the territories of North and South Azerbaijan starting from the VIth century... Based on Arabic and Persian sources, in a time of Khalifat and futher on, starting from the VIIIth century, the term Azerbaijan was used in reference to both as North and South Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan became political-administrative, or geographic or political concept. As, for example, in XII-XIII cc. Azerbaijan along with a geographic concept represented also a political concept - Azerbaijani State of Atabeks (ref.: Z. Buniatov, Historical geography of Azerbaijan, Baku: Elm, 1987, p. 6).
