Summary "This book provides an excellent background to the history of Anglo-Iranian relations. Focusing not only on the political and economic relationship with Britain and on issues of strategic sensitivity, it also illuminates British relations with society and state, and describes the interaction between various representatives and agents of both countries. Anglo-Iranian relations have had a long and complex history, characterized on the one hand by mistrust and intrusion, and on the other hand by mutual exchange and understanding. This book explores the intriguing history of this interactive relationship since 1800, looking at it from a variety of perspectives
Experts in the field make original contributions to our understanding of Iranian history by drawing on many previously unavailable documents in English and Persian. In contrast to earlier works, this book brings a new perspective to Anglo-Iranian relations by looking at the subject over a comparatively long period, and by considering new areas of contact such as social and cultural exchange, and the role of the provincial governor, as well as the continually controversial topic of the Persian Gulf Islands."--Jacket
