Book Summary

Relations between Britain and Iran have always been fraught. Against a background of intrigue, manipulation and Anglo-Russian rivalry for influence, Sir Denis Wright charts the experiences, adventures, and impact of the "English" (including many Scots, Irish, and Welsh) who helped to define the relationship between Britain and Iran from the end of the 18th century to the early 20th century. We meet the diplomats and consuls, soldiers, frontier-makers, spies, traders, travelers, missionaries, concession-hunters, and doctors who in their often colorful, different ways contributed to Anglo-Iranian understanding and misunderstanding.
