The first volume of Hassan Rohani’s Memoir: Islamic Revolution (1962-1979) has been reprinted by the Islamic Revolution Document Center in Iran.
According to the public relations office of the Islamic Revolution Document Center, the book is reprinted as a move to introduce the works and background of president-elect Hassan Rohani to the public.
“Despite the growth and expansion of written culture and technological advances accessible to religious missionaries, oral culture of preaching and directly talking to public audiences are still valuable tools for religious preachers to communicate with the public to transfer their religious messages,” reads a part of the book.
The work mostly reflects on preaching practices by Islamic clerics under the Pahlavi regime and how the clerics managed to keep public opinion high about religious issues.
Besides studying in seminary and university, Rohani had the chance of studying in a foreign country and make use of his learnings in his political activities. He is also one of the founding members of the society of clerics in Tehran and a member of its central council since its establishment.
2,000 copies of the book have been published in the Iranian book market.
