group of Iranologists are writing a new encyclopaedia, both in
Persian and English, and intend to publish it simultaneously in
Iran and Britain.
The team is led by Dr. Hassan Amin, a law lecturer in the UK
universities and publisher of several literary journals
including Hafez and Iranmehr. “Current encyclopaedias lack
several key entries such as freedom, while featuring less
important entries that are irrelevant to modern Iranians,” he
said. “We intend to publish the tome based on contemporary
socio-political needs in Iranian communities.”
They have started their work in 2002 and, according to Dr.
Amin’s estimate, it might finish by 2010. The encyclopaedia is
originally written in English and simultaneously translated into
is the Light on the Path to Future"
