The memoirs of Keikhosrow Shahrokh
The Edwin Mellen Press, 1994 - Biography & Autobiography - 230 pages
Keikhosrow Shahrokh was an outstanding historical figure in Iran: a Zoroastrian in a Muslim world, he worked in diverse fields to bring his nation out of the Dark Ages while simultaneously fighting for the upliftment of his fellow Zoroastrians. This first-person narrative recounts his role as educator, parliamentarian, advisor to Reza Shah Pahlavi, his work as roving ambassador for Iranian industry (from national telephone company to parliamentary printing press), and his determination to remove the social, economic and legal taboos under which Zoroastrians labored for 1,300 years. The memoirs also chronicle the political, economic and social debilitation of Iran at the turn of the century, and give an acute assessment of Zoroastrian-Muslim relations. The editors, Shahrokh Shahrokh, a grandson of Keikhosrow Shahrokh, and Rashna Writer, author of Contemporary Zoroastrians: An Unstructured Nation, have added an introduction and footnotes to the original, forming an important contribution to the study of Iran at the turn of the century.
