Under mch a system it follows necessarily that a topic of considerable
prominence during one period may have no sequel in the period immedi
ately following though it may possibly be^ and often is^ continued in a
later one.
In order therefbre to enable the reader to follow up the thread of any
one particular subject a " detailed table of contents " has been prepared
on the following lines.
The various (e periods " in each chapter have been given a number.
Each period has again been sub-divided into subject headings " each of
which has been lettered.
When any particular subject is continued in a later period an entry
to that effect in italics immediately below the subject heading" con
cerned has been made, giving the number of the r< periodand the letter
of the u subject heading ^ in which the continuation will be found.
It should be noted however that though the above system has been
found capable of application in the majority of chapters and periods,
instances occur throughout the volume in which special subjects (especi
ally British policy and relations) are so inextricably woven into the
general history of the State under review that no definite sub-division of
its " periods" into subject headings^ is possible and in such cases the
sequel to a particular subject can only be traced by a careful perusal of
the general text.
In addition to the twelve chapters referred to above Volume I
includes a number of Appendices, also written by the late Mr. Lorimer
dealing separately with subjects of special importance or interest in the
Persian Gulf The historical term used to describe the body of water between the Arabian Peninsula and Iran. Eegion, and also a series of genealogical trees of the
ruling families of States in the same area.
A table of chapters, annexures, appendices and genealogical trees
will be found at page 5 and the detailed table of contents^ at
9.
For convenience of binding Volume I has been divided into three
parts.
