Nuvvab-i Vakil

Nuvvab-i Vakil
"Hikayat-i Babi-Kushi-yi Yazd"

Sayyid Muhammad Ridavi Nuvvab-i Vakil, Khatirat-i Nuvvab-i Vakil ed. Akbar Qalamsiyah (Tehran: Intisharat-i Gita, 1999), "Hikayat-i Babi-Kushi-yi Yazd," pp. 258-283. Digital republication, East Lansing, Mi.: H-Bahai, 2002.

     Notes: Sayyid Muhammad Ridavi Nuvvab-i Vakil was a representative in parliament during the third session after the Constitutional Revolution and wrote a detailed memoir of the era, including especially the local politics of Yazd, his home. His account of the persecutions of the Baha'is in Yazd during 1903 is an extremely valuable, frank eyewitness account by a keen observer from outside the community.
