“Story of the Baluch” – Zand-Moqaddam’s 7-Volume Book on Baluchi Tribes

Donya-e-Eqtesad Publications, based in Tehran, is going to release a 7-volume anthropological work on Baluch tribes in southeastern Iran, written by researcher, anthropologist and author Mahmoud Zand-Moqaddam.

Titled “Story of the Baluch,” the work will be released next week. It is the outcome of 50 years of research of the Baluchis living in Sistan and Baluchestan, according to the public relations of Donya-e Eqtesad Publications.

Zand-Moqaddam’s study of the Baluchis started in 1963 when the Statistics Center of Iran sent him to the southeast region on a mission to prepare a report on the livelihood of Baluch households.

The mission led to Zand-Moqaddam getting closely involved in the lives of the famous Baluch tribes. Later he undertook his own research on the people and kept traveling to and across the region at his own expense.The 7-volume work covers various aspects in the lives of the Baluchis, including culture, tradition, rituals, beliefs, livelihood, habits, history and myth, sayings and proverbs.

A passage on the back cover of the work describes the Baluch as honest people with no deceit or bad intention behind their words. The work “is the account of the author’s long journey that started half a century ago and lasted until now. He searched village by village, house to house and met people one by one.”
