Discovering Azerbaijan

More than 25 years after teaching as a foreign guest professor at Damavand College in Tehran, I am now getting acquainted with one of Iran's next door neighbors - Azerbaijan. It was back in 1974 when I was teaching in a four-year college institute where we had a student body made up of 750 very bright and capable young women including some of Azerbaijani descent many of whom live in Iran.

During my four years living there, I learned so much about that part of the world and developed a deep love for the people and culture. But the borders were closed to the Soviet Union and I knew nothing about the Azerbaijanis living in the USSR, north of Iran's border. Now Azerbaijan International magazine has opened up a whole new world for me, and I have come to love and admire that country - the newly established Republic of Azerbaijan and the things that are developing there. I wish more people could become involved with this wonderful country. Many, many thanks to all those who are involved in making this magazine a real treasure.
