The Struggle for Persia

Front Cover
Routledge, 2011 - Reference - 268 pages

This volume is an account of the journey the author made between Eastern Russia (via Tabriz) to Teheran at the turn of the twentieth century. This is not just a travelogue, however, but a lament for the loss of British ‚eoeprestige‚e and power in the region to Russia.
