Review:

"A new edition of the 1912 work by the American appointed in 1911 by the newly (and briefly) constitutional government of Persia to help organize its finances. "Ejected" only a year later as a result of "British and Russian diplomatic intrigue," Shuster wrote a lively firsthand account of his experiences that reveals much about how Great Power interference shaped Iran's history, with considerable reference to recent and current events." -- Middle East Journal

"Outside Iran, hardly anyone recalls W. Morgan Shuster, or the 1907 Anglo-Russian agreement. Yet what happened then helps explain how Russia was shut out of the Persian Gulf and why Iranians behave as they do today. Before that pact, Iranians looked upon Russia as a traditional enemy and Britain as a well-meaning friend. Britain had aimed to keep all rivals, especially Russia, away from approaches to India, notably the Persian Gulf. The gulf was virtually a British lake, charted, mapped and cleared of pirated by the British Navy... Hardly had he arrived when Shuster became embroiled in a dispute with Russia over customs policy. He asked for, and was given, plenary powers, by Iran's national assembly. Czarist armies were soon marching on Tehran, demanding Shuster's removal. An embarrassed Britain, citing the 1907 pact, came to Russia's support. Shuster departed but then wrote a forceful book, The Strangling of Persia." -- The New York Times

The Great Game continues. -- The New York Times

From Scientific American:

A new edition of the 1912 work by the American appointed in 1911 by the newly (and briefly) consititutional government of Persia to help organize its finaces. "Ejected" only a year later as a result of "British and Russian diplomatic intrigue," Shuster wrote a lively firsthand account of his expereinces that reveals much about how Great Power interference shaped Iran's history, with considerable reference to recent and current events.
