Abstract:

A classic of modern Persian literature, 'Charand-o Parand' (or 'Stuff and Nonsense') is a work familiar to every literate Iranian. Originally a series of newspaper columns under the title Charand-o Parand for the social demoractice newspaper Ṣūr-i Isrāfīl written by scholar and satirist Ali-Akbar Dehkhoda, the pieces poke fun at mullahs, the shah and the old religious and political order during the Constitutional Revolution. Translated by two distinguished scholars of Persian language and history, this volume makes Dehkhoda's entertaining political observations available to English readers for the first time
