About the Authors
  • These four volumes, concerning Muslim minority communities from 1843 to 1973, consist of contemporary political despatches, correspondence and reports composed by British diplomats, some of whom were resident in the country under debate. The papers are written very clearly from a British perspective, but this authoritative voice of government allows us an insight into high politics at a time when the British were inextricably involved in the government of the Middle East. The documents provide information and insight, but what is also evident, from even a quick reading, is the extent to which the position and treatment of minority cultures is a central consideration in achieving peace and good governance. Perhaps inevitably the material concerning minorities is partial and unsatisfactory in some ways; but taken together these volumes provide a continuity of evidence for how little has changed from historical to modern times.

    • Treatment of ethnic minorities is at the forefront of current political discussion, and this collection provides historical primary source documents
    • Previously unknown or fragmented material is now available here in a coherent collection
    • Documents have been carefully selected and edited for maximum value to researchers and scholars
