There are many analogies between Ryszard Kapuscisski and Alexis de Toqueville’s works. They both show a substantial similarity in the sphere of their interest, but also in methodology used to obtain information. An important part of Kapuściński and de Toqueville’s achievements are considerations on social mechanisms of thegenesis of the revolution. Moreover, the authors of Szachinszach and The Old Regime and the Revolution, while gathering material for their works, were leading direct observation assuming examining role of a participant through an observer. Therefore, in Ryszard Kapuscinski’s Szachinszach observations on the genesis of the Iranian Islamic Revolution can be interpreted through the prism of Alexis de Toqueville’s reflection on the origins of the French Revolution. The result of adopting such a perspective is the recognition of both writers’ professional research techniques and sanctioning their researches as scientific ones.
