Prelude to the Guardianship by Riaz Khadem has much of the same content as Shoghi Effendi in Oxford (SEO) by the same author. Prelude to the Guardianship is expanded and revised.

In Prelude to the Guardianship Riaz Khadem, the son of one of the 27 helpers of the Guardian known as Hands of the Cause and himself a student at Balliol College almost fifty years after Shoghi Effendi, traces the future Guardian’s educational career from his early youth through his year at Oxford. Drawing on the memoirs of Shoghi Effendi’s fellow students at Balliol, the author provides a fascinating glimpse into this period in Baha'i history when the young Shoghi Effendi, the future head of the Faith, was being prepared for the mission by ‘Abdu’l-Baha himself. The reader will discover how the education experience of Shoghi Effendi at Oxford contributed to his literary style and to his amazing analysis of the Faith’s impact on the social forces that have shaped, and continue to influence, the evolution of humanity towards its ultimate destiny.
