When this book was published, and apparently for most of the 100 years following its publication, it was believed to be the work of Haydar-Ali. However, in 2004 Ahang Rabbani and Khazeh Fananapazir concluded that the treatise was actually written by Abdu'l-Bahá. Their re-translation of this book is online at abdul-baha_treatise_persecutions_1903.
