The Myth of Arab Piracy in the Gulf

The Myth of Arab Piracy in the Gulf

Author : سلطان بن محمد القاسمي

This book is a meticulous examination of the circumstances determining the fortunes of European trading establishments in the Gulf during a period of great political change in Persia. For the first time, detailed use is made of the copious archives of the Dutch and English East India Companies, together with a wealth of traveller's tales, through which the author is able to show that earlier historiography was mistaken in its approach to the subject. He illustrates the intimate relationship between political conditions and trading results, and gives a lively account of European efforts to overcome the huge problems they faced in trying to succeed in Gulf markets.

This is a major contribution to the historical geography of the Gulf, and a remakable quarry of primary sources which will be of value to other research workers.
