About the Authors
  • The Persian Gulf Gazette was instituted as the administration of British interests in the Gulf entered a new phase - and the final phase of direct involvement in government. The policy directives of the Foreign Office to the Political Resident in 1953 reflected the changing British role - perhaps more accurately than was realised: harmonise with US policy; maintain good relations with Saudi Arabia; resolve territorial disputes; encourage co-operation among the Gulf States. In the past the British aim had been government, disguised as advice; now it was no more than the hope of influence - disguised as assistance.

      The Persian Gulf Gazette was instituted as the administration of British interests in the Gulf entered a new phase - and the final phase of direct involvement in government. The policy directives of the Foreign Office to the Political Resident in 1953 reflected the changing British role - perhaps more accurately than was realised: harmonise with US policy; maintain good relations with Saudi Arabia; resolve territorial disputes; encourage cooperation among the Gulf States. In the past the British aim had been government, disguised as advice; now it was no more than the hope of influence - disguised as assistance.

    • Historical Overview

      The Gazette thus functioned as a signal of British diplomatic and judicial control. It remains a comprehensive and valuable indicator of official activity and of relations between Britain and the States. The Supplements record legislative Orders in Council and Queen's Regulations.
      The Persian Gulf Gazette provides a detailed research source for the study of political life in the Gulf from the post-war period to the achievement of full independence by the respective States.

      The Persian Gulf Gazette was one of the instruments of transition, a medium of communication in which British authority is seen to decline as consultation with State Goverments increases.

    • Documentary Importance

      The Persian Gulf Gazette appeared at quarterly intervals for a period of 20 years. Each issue containes a section covering each state: Bahrain, Kuwait Qatar, the Trucial Shaikhdoms, Muscat & Oman. The following were the usual headings; with items of information such as:
      Foreign Office appointments
      Judicial appointments
      Other appointments, e.g. of 'authorised persons' for specific duties
      Honours bestowed upon individuals
      Notices, e.g. of official approval of certain commercial undertakings
      List of Orders in Council, Regulations, Rules, etc. in force in each State, the full text being given in the Supplements
      Legislation proposed at a future date
      Independence and the transfer of jurisdiction

      The concluding issues of the Gazette, at the moment when Bahrain, the Trucial States and Oman were achieving or preparing for independence, are filled with orders for the transfer of jurisdiction from British to local authority. Some orders are accompanied by schedules of regulations affected by the change. The Persian Gulf Gazette concludes by quoting the statutory instrument by which, in 1972, Her Majesty relinquished Her jurisdiction in the Trucial States.

    • Arrangement of Volumes

      The complete series of Gazettes are published from Vol. 1 No. 1 dated October 1953 to Vol. 20 No. 1 dated May 1972 and the Supplements are published from No. 1 dated October 1953, to No. 58 dated August 1968.
