Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names that occur in the book British Missions around the Gulf, 1575-2005: Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman. 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. Trade first brought the English to the region, and trade still remains at the heart of present-day contacts. Readers can find, as with studies of areas further east, the East India Company (EIC) - 'John Company' or just 'the company' as the years went by - was heavily involved in developing trade with the Middle East from its founding in 1600 until the late eighteenth century, and indeed, had some lingering trade concerns until its final disappearance in the wake of the Indian Mutiny in 1857.

Keywords: British Missions; East India Company (EIC); Iran; Iraq; Kuwait; Oman
