Kazakhstan is one of the fifteen republics received independence after the collapse of Soviet Union. If we have a transient look at Kazakh history we understand that the Cossacks were isolated from Turks society in 1465 and with the independent identity of the Khanate of the Cossacks came to the forefront and until the Russian dominance, they retained their own identity. The Cossacks were spreaded in vast expanses of Central Asia. But we know that this vast geography is part of Iran's cultural geography. Consequently, the historical process of thought and literature in this field is necessary for the investigation of Iranian scientific circles. As a result, in order to achieve this goal, we reviewed the book “Kazakh History and Literature “Survey and Analysis of Historical and Literary Links with Iran” by Prof. Dr. Islam Zhemeni. In this review we will mention to the positive features of the book, such as providing brief information on the history and culture of the Kazakhs, the various periods of Kazakh literature, especially the literature of the Stalin era, and the way in which the Cossack intellectuals struggled with Stalin's despotism at the head of them in the process of Kazakh culture and thinking.
