Pre-1979 Revolution Iranian Political Pamphlet Collection

The University of Oklahoma has acquired a substantial collection of primary source material relating to the 1979 Iranian revolution. Most material is in Persian. The collection comprises more than 350 items, mostly consisting of pamphlets and short political tracts produced by intellectuals, student activists, and political parties working to overthrow the Pahlavi monarchy. Much of the material was printed and circulated by leftist and Islamist opposition groups residing in Europe and North American during the 1960s and 1970s. The bulk of the material is in Persian.
For more information see Dr. Afshin Marashi's guide, below. See this search in the library's catalog for a complete list of the collection's titles.
