Diplomats, Travellers and Explorers of the Middle East and Beyond, 1600-1940. The fifteen studies making up this book represent a concern of the author who began as a historian of Britain and Europe and then shifted his interests eastwards-in the interaction of Westerners, here in the main Britons, with the Islamic East and beyond.

In the earlier years this involved mainly the journeys and explorations of diplomatic envoys and consuls, merchants and missionaries, sprinkled with aristocrats and gentry on the Grand Tour around the Mediterranean lands. But in the early nineteenth century were added such factors as the intellectual and artistic curiosity of scholars and antiquarians lured on by exotic lands and peoples and by the buildings and objets dart there, plus, from mid-century onwards, a growing body of non-professionals, leisured persons and sightseers, the forerunners of the mass tourism of the twentieth century.

The various experiences and discoveries of individuals from all these groups are here described and discussed.
