Synopsis

This book examines the diplomatic activities and behind-the-scene negotiations which led to the Karun opening, including an 'Assurance' given by Britain to the Shah against a Russian retaliation. It also provides a comprehensive analysis of the region's demography, commerce and industry before the advent of the Karun, and the impact of Britain's political and commercial penetration, which eventually resulted in her total domination of the south.

This analytical study of the Anglo-Iranian relationship is unique in its extensive use of primary Persian sources and original material found at the Iranian Foreign Ministry archives which have been accessed by the author for the first time.

Shahbaz Shahnavaz holds a BSc in Political Science and an MA in Middle Eastern Studies from Tehran University, an MSc in International Relations from the University of London and a Dphil. in Economic History from Oxford University. He was a member-designate of the academic staff at Tehran University and has worked in senior consultancy and executive positions in some of the Persian Gulf region's major financial institutions and banks.
