Chapter Summary

This section of the book British Missions Around the Gulf, 1575-2005: Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman presents a list of names of the heads of mission in the Gulf posts. The book shows, the British - at first, the English - have been involved in the Middle East since before there was a British Empire, and indeed, before the first English settlers established themselves in North America. If moment it was, it was by no means a fleeting one. Even today, when Britain's international role is much reduced from the heady days of the Empire, the Middle East and its many countries and traditions are seen as a vital concern. The 'Camel Corps', the somewhat disparaging term used to describe those who have studied Arabic and who have worked in the region, still counts as do those who know Iran and its very different traditions.

Keywords: British Missions; Iran; Iraq; Kuwait; Oman
