Despite growing interest in the Baha'is of Iran, research on the history of this often-persecuted minority community has been limited by the availability of primary sources. 'The Baha'is of Iran, Transcaspia and the Caucasus' will help to fill this gap by assembling for the first time diplomatic reports and official correspondence from Russian archives. Volume 2 of this collection documents from the Russian standpoint the dramatic Babi upheavals, the persecution of Babis and Baha'is in Iran, and events including the landmark Ashgabat murder trial. This volume thus provides fascinating insights into the perspective of one of the players of the 'Great Game' in the region, making this book an invaluable resource for anyone interested in Babi and Baha'i history, the history of religion and minorities, Russo-Persian relations or Qajar Iran.
