(p.423) 19 The Rastakhiz Party
The Life and Times of the Shah

Gholam R. Afkhami

University of California Press

By 1971, the year the shah celebrated the twenty-five-hundredth anniversary of the Iranian monarchy, the shah had achieved what no Iranian had achieved in recent memory. He was in a position to challenge the West and win. By 1975, the year of the Resurrection Party, the “Rastakhiz,” he seemed invincible. He had helped maneuver Mansur and the Iran Novin into power to administer his White Revolution. Rastakhiz was a stream many tributaries fed. One tributary may have been an analysis of Iran's political conditions made in late 1971 and early 1972 for the queen, and by extension for the shah, by a group of relatively young intellectuals drawn from the universities and mid-level government, who acted as an unofficial think tank for the queen.
