CGIE to Release ‘Comprehensive Geography of Iran’ in Summer

After ‘The Comprehensive History of Iran,’ a 20-volume survey of Iranian history, the Center for the Great Islamic Encyclopedia (CGIE) in Tehran will unveil another ambitious research work in summer.
The Comprehensive History of Iran was unveiled in June 2015. Its editor was Iranian historian, theologian and writer Kazem Mousavi Bojnourdi, 75, founder of CGEI and curator of the National Library of Iran from 1997-2005.
Bojnourdi spoke of the center’s latest 5-voulme publication titled ‘The Comprehensive Geography of Iran,’ that is to be unveiled in summer, in an interview with Mehr News Agency.
The collection is meant firstly “to provide greater knowledge about the country, including environmental, ecological, social, economic and political information.”
Secondly, the work will serve as a “scientifically documented reference for all sections of the society including elites, graduates, experts, officials and decision-makers.”
A group of specialist and knowledgeable researchers contributed to the research and included articles on various subjects such as geology, climatology, natural resources, demography, lifestyle, sociology, economics and politics.
The work on history will undoubtedly be a helpful companion alongside its geographical counterpart, particularly when the reader is in pursuit of historical information, Bojnourdi said, noting that the two works are in line with the strategic goals of CGIE. “They are independent and complete in their respective subject-matter, but interrelated in content.”
The third edition of ‘The Comprehensive History of Iran’ will be brought out in mid-spring. The multi-volume work is now undergoing editing. Considerable changes have been introduced to the work.

 Like a Living Organism
“I believe the Center for the Great Islamic Encyclopedia is like a living organism that must constantly be active in research, compiling and editing. It should assess criticisms and offer appropriate answers to its educated readership,” Bojnourdi said.
He appreciated the efforts by researcher and geographer Professor Abbas Saeedi for his scientific supervision over the center’s latest work.
He also paid tribute to the late masters who contributed to the five volumes, namely geographer and author Ali Asghar Nazari; editor, essayist and expert in local planning Mostafa Mo’meni; author, environmental expert and specialist in green space Kambiz Bahram Soltani; bibliographer, historian and researcher in Iranian studies Iraj Afshar; and meteorologist Mohammad Hassan Ganji, who is known as the father of modern geography in Iran.
