The education of women : &, the vices of men : two Qajar tracts by Hasan Javadi( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At The Close of the nineteenth century, modern ideas of democracy and equality were slowly beginning to take hold in Iran. Exposed to European ideas about law, equality, and education, upper- and middle-class men and women increasingly questioned traditional ideas about the role of women and their place in society. In apparent response to this emerging independence of women, an anonymous author penned The Education of Women, a small booklet published in 1889. This guide, aimed at husbands as much as at wives, instructed women on how to behave toward their husbands, counseling them on proper dress, intimacy, and subservience

Safavid government institutions by Willem M Floor( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Persian and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book offers a thorough analysis and examination of virtually all the available sources of information (Persian chronicles and archival documents; European traveler accounts, memoirs, and archival sources). The Dutch material is of particular importance and their integration with the more familiar information is unique. In addition to scholars of Iran, Central Asia and the Middle East, it would also be of interest to those working in the field of comparative institutions in history, sociology and political science."--BOOK JACKET

The first Dutch-Persian commercial conflict : the attack on Qeshm Island, 1645 by Willem M Floor( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study the authors examine Safavid economic and diplomatic relations with the West and discuss the forces that created and shaped commercial relationship between the Safavid state and the Netherlands. The analyses are based upon a series of unpublished and very important documents concerning the first Dutch-Persian commercial conflict leading to the attack on the island of Qeshm in 1645 and the beginning of Dutch trade with Basra. Despite extensive communication between the Safavid officials and the Dutch, as we can see from the many Dutch translations of Persian letters and decrees, only thirty five Persian documents have survived, of which only five are originals. The authors challenge the conventional wisdom that the Safavid economy was subservient to the exploitative practices of European Companies, and demonstrate that the relationship between Dutch traders and the Safavid court was at best one of privileged guests where the Shah and his court tolerated the Dutch to make a profit."--Jacket

The Persian Gulf : the rise and fall of Bandar-e Lengeh, the distribution center for the Arabian Coast, 1750-1930 by Willem Floor( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A small, sleepy port in the Persian Gulf, Bandar-e Lengeh has had a varied and checkered history since its launch onto the historical scene around 1750. In those days the tribal people of the region felt at home on both sides of the Gulf and often went to wherever they thought would offer them a better life. When the Qavasem Arabs moved to Lengeh and developed it, they turned it from a sleepy fishing town into a pirate's nest. They, together with their kith and kin in Sharjah and Ras al-Khaimah, became the scourge of the Gulf until 1819 when the British burnt all three ports to the ground. After this, convinced that piracy was not worth the cost, the people of Lengeh became peaceful, and very successful as traders and pearl fishers. Lengeh became the distribution center for the entire Arabian Coast and rivaled Bahrain as the pearl clearing center of the Gulf. This success attracted people from all over the Gulf to come and live in Lengeh, making it a symbol of the Gulf migratory culture (havaleh). Lengeh's success and prosperity did not end because of competition, but because in 1903 the Iranian government enacted a new customs regime for all their ports--but Lengeh was an "Arabian" port located in Iran. As a result, Lengeh lost its competitive position to Dubai, which opened its doors to many of Lengeh's merchants. Thereafter, Lengeh declined and by 1930 it was once again a minor port and fishing town. The Persian Gulf: The Rise and Fall of Bandar-e Lengeh, The Distribution Center for the Arabian Coast, 1750-1930 is the third volume of the Persian Gulf series by Willem Floor. This book is a rich compendium of Iranian, Dutch, and British reports and primary sources. It is also full of enthralling research into the work of travelers in the region. While it is essential reading for all scholars of the history of the Gulf, it is also informative and satisfying for those readers interested in the history of the region in general."--Publisher's website

The Persian Gulf : links with the hinterland : Bushehr, Borazjan, Kazerun, Banu Ka'b, & Bandar Abbas by Willem M Floor( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Links with the Hinterland focuses on two related themes: the importance of what goes on in a port city's hinterland, and, the importance of a safe and secure road that connects a port city to its markets. What happened in the port of Bushehr was influenced by events in nearby towns such as Borazjan and Kazerun, and far off provinces such as Khuzestan, as well as by the actions of local chiefs controlling the land adjacent to the trade route. The histories of Borazjan and Kazerun show the importance of the behavior of local chiefs and of migrating tribes in keeping the caravan route secure or not. A breakdown of the port city's authority over its hinterland, in particular the trade route, impacted on its well-being both financially and politically. Likewise, the history of the Banu Kàb in Khuzestan shows how the takeover of tribal leadership by a more commercially oriented lineage led to the rise of a rival port to Bushehr that ultimately would oust it from its leading position. The description of the commercial route between Bandar Abbas and Isfahan, during the Safavid period, highlights the importance of road infrastructure in linking a seaport with the markets in its hinterland. The ports in the Persian Gulf were but caravan termini. The ports themselves did not constitute a major market for imports; the real market for these goods was in the interior of Iran and, therefore, the road linking the port and its markets was a lifeline for both. This study makes clear that what happened along that road, connecting the terminus and the market, determined to a great extent how much volume was shipped and at what cost. Finally, Links with the Hinterland also demonstrates how the attacks on mainly British-owned goods on the Bandar Abbas-Isfahan road bestowed a hue of nationalist resistance to the robber chiefs during the First World War. -- Product Description from Website
