This is not just a history book, but is an attempt to find a solution for the problem of Iran by the knowledge of past. This book starts from creation of the Universe and after reveiwing the vanished civilizations, gradually enters into history of Iran and Islam. History of Iran after Islam, together with important events in the other parts of the world, specially their advancements, have been analyzed. Until we sum up the last one hundred-year struggles of our country, in order to prove: The way to rescue Iran is a new constitution. History of Iran, simultaneously with events in the other parts of the world are studied, to find out what is really the problem with us? We have tries so hard and even had revolutions for freedom and never succeeded. In this book, lots of documents and articles have been copied from Internet Encyclopedias Wikipedia, National Geography, History and other websites. After reading these few hundred pages, we will conclude: Not having an ideal constitution in Iran is our problem. In the past thirty years, theft, corruption, murder, injustice, prostitution, drug addiction, insult to people’s believes, lies, torture and rape in prison and many other shameful behaviors in this Dictatorship Regime of the Ayatollahs, has super pass the level, or even higher than international record level. For many years these shameless behaviors have lost its sense of shame and hideousness. Force, reasoning, and million-people demonstrations and protests have no effect. More importantly, military intervention either by Sadam or in the future, only strengthen the regime. Unfortunately a lot of Iranians who inside and outside Iran randomly complain, they have hopes to reform the present regime or follow the failed monarchists or a group of traitor terrorists and most ridicules are those who believe “The 12th Emam Messiah” will come out of the “Chamkaran Well” and rescue this tired and weary nation. Before reforming or changing this regime, a constitution must be drafted and all of our campaign to be on this constitution’s framework. In that case, the opportunists in the future, like two previous Iranian revolutions, will not be able to steal our revolution and impose another dictatorship on Iran. After swearing to this new constitution, anybody can candid himself or herself for leadership. Only with an ideal new constitution, we can guarantee the death of dictatorship forever. Before raising the slogans to change this regime, first job, even in this age of freedom suffocations and suppressions in Iran, must be to draft an ideal new constitution. Fortunately, in this age of Internet, we can put our new constitution in a relative referendum and after having a constitution in hand; we can start our non-violence campaign. Our slogan must be “change of constitution”. Otherwise, “death to the dictator”, “equality between men and women”, “separation of religion and government”, “equality for all Iranian with any religion and political view”, “enforcing the international declaration of human right” and hundreds of other slogans, they all will be in this new constitution. In the past hundred year, hundreds Kaveh Ahangar have come and gone. But where is Derafsh e Kavian?

Among his most prominent writings are The Religious Spirit of the Slavs (1916) and Beyond Sin and Death (1914).

There is a fundamental discrepancy between man as he is and man as he could be, if only he recognized his true being and purpose. Ethics is the discipline by which man can understand how he can pass from the first condition to the second. Udo Schaefer's Baha'i Ethics in Light of Scripture is an attempt to analyse the underlying structures and detect the interior architecture of the Baha'i moral system and is a step towards developing a Baha'i moral theology. Doctrinal Fundamentals, the first of two volumes, provides a historical overview of the Baha'i Faith, a systematic survey of it doctrines and an overview of the origin and derivation of moral values. It considers the metaphysical nature of human beings and human responsibilities, looks at reason and conscience, and explores liberty and its limits. Schaefer's second volume deals with concrete values - the virtues, divine commandments and principles of social ethics from a Baha'i perspective."

In Light of Africa explores how the idea of Africa as a real place, an imagined homeland, and a metaphor for Black identity is used in the cultural politics of the Brazilian state of Bahia. In the book, Allan Charles Dawson argues that Africa, as both a symbol and a geographical and historical place, is vital to understanding the wide range of identities and ideas about racial consciousness that exist in Bahia's Afro-Brazilian communities. In his ethnographic research Dawson follows the idea of “Africa” from the city of Salvador to the West African coast and back to the hinterlands of the Bahian interior. Along the way, he encounters West African entrepreneurs, Afrobeat musicians, devotees of the Afro-Brazilian religion Candomblé, professors of the Yoruba language, and hardscrabble farmers and ranchers, each of whom engages with the “idea of Africa” in their own personal way.
