The foundation of the School of Political Sciences as an educational institution at the Mozaffar-ed-din Shah Qajarchr('39')s era led to the beginning of teaching and training of politicians. The school was planned to train experienced people for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Mohammad Ali Foroughi was one of the first teachers and writers of history textbooks at this school. With a descriptive-analytical method and by a survey of Foroughichr('39')s history textbooks and the book Primary Era of the World History (History of Iran), the present study seeks to answer what were the features of this book to be taught at the School of Political Sciences. The findings of this study suggest that this book could teach the history of Iran to the students of the School of Political Sciences in a disciplined way and created a new approach to writing history, as it became a model for the next writers of history textbooks.
Keywords: Qajar, School of Political Sciences, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, History, Education.
