November 23, 1998
It was already decided two weeks ago that Ali Reza-Qoli's Jaame-eh shenaasi-e Nokhbeh-koshi ("The Sociology of Eliminating the Cream of the Crop") would be this week's cover story. And now, by unhappy coincidence, the November 23 gruesome murder of the nationalist opposition leader, Dariush Forouhar, and his activist wife Parvaneh, will bring the book's message more into focus.
Jaame-eh shenaasi-e Nokhbeh-koshiis a 240-page indictment against those who bare the greatest responsibility in the down fall of the country's most progressive leaders in recent centuries. And who does this Iranian sociologist blame the most? Foreign powers and their Iranian agents? No. Ourselves.
