NEW HORIZONS PUBLICATIONS
It became evident that certain work must be carried out under a specialized organization dedicated to a much-needed function. Doors close to many avenues, but access to people's culture is always open. People resist to many an attempt, but not to culture. We have come to understand and accept that the only thing people can cling to is their culture. Therefore, it was decided that much effort would be devoted to this field. To make sure that various activities do not intermingle, it was decided that this particular effort will be carried out under the guidance of a group to be known as:
IRAN CULTURAL RESEARCH FOUNDATION.
In reality, work in this area had begun four years ago, but recently we consolidated into one organization and integrated all the effort. Books that are published and to be published are as follows:
