English Amongst the Persians by Sir Denis Wright

Book Description

Against a background of intrigue and manipulation on both sides, the author charts the experiences and impact of those 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, soldiers, spies, traders, travellers, missionaries, engineers and doctors who all in their often colourful, different ways contributed to Anglo-Iranian understanding and misunderstanding. The text illuminates a little-known corner of British imperial and diplomatic history.
