Gharbzadegi = Weststruckness by Jalāl Āl Aḥmad( Book )

54 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gharbzadegi was written in 1962 when the Pahlavi regime seemed to have control over Iran's destiny. For the author, the result was total national submission to the West and its technology. The Iranian monarchy is portrayed in this work as no more than a native brokerage for Western influence, with no aims and identity of its own. Al-e Ahmad sought to rediscover an Iranian identity based on historical and religious criteria, defined in part by a tradition of conflict with the West"--Book jacket

A stone on a grave by Jalāl Āl Aḥmad( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sangi bar Guri [A Stone on a Grave] is a candid account of a male Iranian, in this case, a well-known essayist, fiction writer and socially and politically engaged intellectual, in his struggle to cope with his inability to produce offspring. In this book, Jalal Al-e Ahmad delves into the recesses of his own psyche to explore the roots of his identity as an Iranian male, his manhood. Consciously, he tries to uncover why having children to continue one's name and legacy, not unlike one's gravestone, should signify that he had existed, and why it should be of concern and importance after one's death. In a sense, he attempts to justify his own inability to have children. But, subconsciously, he reveals aspects of himself and his psyche that he may not have intended to reveal. This volume also includes an in-memoriam essay by the renowned writer and Al-e Ahmad's wife, Simin Daneshvar."--Jacket
