Dr James Onley, University Of Exeter. James Onley, senior lecturer in Middle Eastern History, specialises in Gulf history, Indian history, and British imperial history. He is the author of The Arabian Frontier of the British Raj: Merchants, Rulers, and the British in the Nineteenth Century Gulf, (Oxford University Press, 2007). His forthcoming book, Protecting Arabia: Britain and the Gulf Shaikhs, 1820- 1971, is a reinterpretation of Britain's role in the Gulf. It explains how regional alliances, tribal allegiances, and tribute relations worked, offering new insights into the role played by outside powers.
