This chapter discusses three periods in the socio-economic history of Iran during the Mongol dominion, ranging from the twenties of the thirteenth century to the eighties of the fourteenth century.... More > In the Middle Ages invasions by conquering nomads of cultivated settled areas were normally devastative. The Saljuq conquest of Iran was accompanied by pillage and destruction. The destructive nature of the invasion of Khurāsān by the Oghuz of Balkh in the fifties of the twelfth century is notorious. The Mongol conquest took an equally heavy toll in Tabaristān (Māzandarān). The reforms of Ghazan and the temporary transfer of a leading political role in the State from the nomad Mongol-Turkish aristocracy to the Iranian civil bureaucracy made some economic improvement possible, especially in agriculture. The Mongol conquest had a great and in general evil influence on the economic development of Iran; it had much less influence on the social structure of the country.< Less

Contrary to the common belief but misguided, Iranian and orientalist scholars,who define the Kurds as part of Iranian civilization and culture, this book indicates that the Kurds are not Iranians.... More > This book shed light on how the political strata of Iran with all its components, such as state, geography, religion, mythology, language, and symbol have been developed with the negation of Kurds. While Kurds are native to the land, but it was immigrant Persians who conquered the land with subjugation and war with the Medes and conquered territories of the Medes the land of Iran, the lost paradise, their promised land. After defeating the Medes and conquering the land of Medes, the state, government and empire were formed to preserve its subjugation and maintain its domination over the Medes, and the Persian empire has been tool of ethnic domination of Persian over Medes.

برخلاف تصور رایج، اما غلط... More > پژوهشگران ایرانی و مستشرقین، که کُردها را بخشی از تمدن و فرهنگ ایرانی تعریف می کنند، این کتاب بیانگر آن است که کُردها نه تنها ایرانی نیستند بلکه عقل سیاسی ایران با تمامی مولفه‌های خویش مانند دولت، سرزمین، دین، اسطوره، زبان و سمبل، در تقابل و با نفی و غیرسازی کُردها تکوین یافته است. کُردها بومی اما ایرانیها مهاجرانی بودند که با فتح و جنگ با مادها بر این سرزمین مسلط شدند و سرزمینهای تسخیر شده‌ی مادها را ایران زمین، بهشت گمشده و ارض موعود خویش نامیدند. بعد از شکست نظامی و فتح سرزمین مادها، دولت/امپراطوری را برای حفظ فتوحات خود و حفظ سلطه‌ی خویش بر مادها تشکیل داده و امپراطوری ایرانی ابزار سلطه‌ی قومی پارس بر ماد بوده است. دین پارسی زرتشت اساساً در تقابل با آیین مادی میترا تکوین یافت و میترای مادی در دین زرتشت به اهریمن ملقب شد. اساطیر ایرانی نه اساطیر مشترک ماد و پارس بلکه خاطره‌ی پیروزی پارس بر ماد و دیگری این اساطیر چون اهریمن، ضحاک، تورانیان، دیوها و شرّ خطاب به مادها است. زبان پارسی با مصادره‌ی واژگان مادی، یک شبه به دستور داریوش برای حفظ خاطره‌ی پیروزی بر ماد زایش یافت.< Less
