The papers include the creator's dissertation, along with newspapers, clippings, serial publications, booklets, and other writings relating to education in Iran, the Iranian revolution of 1979, and political, social, and economic conditions in Iran.
Fakhreddin Moussavi was born in Iran in 1940. In the years following, the country experienced a flood of political events including the British embargo on Iranian oil exports and the Shah's 1963 "White Revolution." During the 1979 Iranian Revolution, and the subsequent formation of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Fakhreddin Moussavi attended Stanford University, where he earned his PhD. His dissertation, published in 1980, focused on elementary-level social studies education in Iran. In this same year, Abolhasan Banisadr was elected the first president of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Iran-Iraq war had commenced (BBC News, 2009).
