Search - List of Books by Mahshid Amirshahi

Mahshid Amirshahi is a contemporary Iranian writer. She is an active proponent of establishing a secular democracy in Iran, and as an opponent of the current Islamic republic, for which she moved into exile in France after the 1979 Iranian revolution.

During the revolution, Amirshahi was one of the only politically active writers openly supporting Shahpour Bakhtiar. She even published an article in Ayandegan in January 1979, warning the danger of a religious regime, and stressing on the necessity of supporting Bakhtiar, whom she named a national hero and maverick. She has continued her long enduring support for Bakhtiar to date, saying "It's a great pain to be a maverick, but at the same time, it brings you pride, which is a cure to that pain."
