About the Authors
  • The boundaries of the Arabian peninsula are notable for the sensitivities and disagreements which have accompanied their relatively short history. As the twentieth century progressed, the partition of resources, initially pastures and water wells, subsequently oil and gas, was particularly crucial, but the boundary makers, chiefly the diplomats of the imperial powers, were inconsistent in paying attention to the human and physical characteristics of the terrain when negotiating or imposing many limits. Consequently boundary studies in this area have been and remain a fruitful topic for geographers and anthropologists as well as a necessary preoccupation for strategists and politicians. The records of the various British government departments represented here provide by far the most extensive and complete survey of the evolution of territorial affairs in Arabia and the Gulf. They will certainly form the core of any future legal debate focusing upon the historical aspects of any one of the region's boundaries on land or sea.

      It has been the publishers' objective to assemble within one major research publication copies of the essential documents for a comprehensive view of the creation of modern boundaries within the Arabian peninsula. The process of finding, obtaining and organising such material has been lengthy, and the work renders a large mass of documents easily accessible.

      The boundaries of the Arabian peninsula are notable for the sensitivities and disagreements which have accompanied their relatively short history. Not only is the perennial human concern for territory involved; in this region, as the 20th century progressed, the partition of resources, initially pastures and water wells, subsequently oil and gas, was particularly crucial. The boundary makers, chiefly the diplomats of the imperial powers, were inconsistent in paying attention to the human and physical characteristics of the terrain when negotiating or imposing many limits. Consequently boundary studies in this area have been and remain a fruitful topic for geographers and anthropologists as well as a necessary pre- occupation for strategists and politicians. The particular distinguishing characteristics of Arabia's territorial framework is that it is far from complete. Saudi Arabia's border in the southern peninsula has never been formally finalised, while the status of many supposedly 'final' delimitations elsewhere is at best uncertain, if not actively disputed. Here, then, is a particularly compelling reason for the publication of these documents. The records of the various British government departments represented here provide by far the most extensive and complete survey of the evolution of territorial affairs in Arabia and the Gulf. They will certainly form the core of any future legal debate focussing upon the historical aspects of any one of the region's boundaries on land or sea.

    • Historical Overview

      This collection makes available copies of the several thousand documents which have determined the territorial divisions of Arabia today. An appreciation of Arabia's territorial history is essential for an understanding of contemporary political events in the region. Boundaries were originally defined by Britain to protect her interests in the area but it is the relatively new, independent states of the Gulf and the peninsula who have to live within this imposed territorial framework. This has not always been easy and boundary disputes remain a ready source of friction between many neighbouring states. To complicate the picture further certain boundaries in the southern peninsula have not yet been agreed at the time of publication, (1988). 

      The future settlement of such borders demands an intimate knowledge of Arabia's territorial past. This is best provided by inspection of the records of the British government, the most important items of which have been selected for presentation in these volumes. Their publication in this form offers two advantages. First, it makes available to a wider audience material previously located only in the archives of the National Archives at Kew and the India Office Library and Records, London. Second, the sequence of documents appearing in these volumes has been drawn from a vast and complex web of material and totally re-organised in a clear, coherent and logical manner.

    • Documentary Importance

      The criteria for the selection of documents are the following. Records have been identified which either specifically define the various boundaries concerned or throw direct light on their origin or evolution. Thus the records presented include treaties, letters, telegrams, memoranda and notes, the latter often being diplomatic summaries and assessments. The events described include negotiations, agreements, disputes, incursions and claims. 

      The aim in this publication is to present a sequence of original file material in integral form for the benefit of the researcher. The editors have refrained from judgement and comment other than to provide notes on the historical background to the records in each volume. Individual documents are reproduced in their entirety and balance is maintained where files include submissions of more than one point of view. This edition is reprinted from original material varying greatly in size and quality. For ease of handling the volumes have been printed to the regular library format of 248 x 160mm. The accompanying maps are supplied in map boxes made and bound in a similar form to the text volumes. The maps have been reproduced as far as possible in their original sizes and colours.

    • Arrangement of Volumes

      The collection is organised in the first instance according to geographical sequence. Each interstate boundary around the periphery of Saudi Arabia is examined in turn in a clockwise manner. The material on each boundary is then presented, in the respective volumes, in chronological order. The first two volumes deal with general political issues in the Arabian Peninsula.

      The starting point for the collection is determined by an agreement of 1853 which (although some material of earlier date is included) marks Britain's resolve to impose a peace upon the southern Gulf region.

      The editors have written a General Introduction discussing the special characteristics of boundaries in the Arabian peninsula. Each volume or group of volumes is then preceded by an editorial note on the historical background to the documents for that area.
