The History of Aden by Dr Z H Kour, Z.H. Kour

By Dr Z H Kour, Z.H. Kour

Эта книга повествует о британской оккупации Адена в 1839-1872 гг. Англия заняла Аден в 1839 г., чтобы предотвратить возможные действия Франции и из-за его превосходного местоположения. Текст, главным образом, основан на документах Индийского архива в Лондоне и Шотландского архива в Эдинбурге. Текст монолитен и посвящен следующим вопросам: 1) расширению поселения, 2) торговле, three) администрации и управлению, four) деловыми отношениями с султаном Лахиджа.
Отмечены особенности этого периода - постоянное препирательство между политическим и военным командующими и их деловые отношения с Ост-Индской компанией и британским правительством, которое изрядно «зажимало» любое положительное действие, плюс мелкие подкупы племенных вождей во внутренних районах, ради удержания мира. Однако, все это сказывалось на ситуации в целом регионе.Образцы сканов:
