1. Introduction ; 2. British India's Informal Empire and Spheres of Influence in Asia and Africa ; 3. British India's Native Agency System in Asia ; 4. The Operation of British India's Native Agency in Bahrain ; 5. British India's Native Agents in Bahrain ; 6. The Decline of British India's Native Agency System in Bahrain and the Gulf ; 7. Conclusion: The Arabian Frontier of the Indian Empire
The Arabian Frontier of the British Raj tells the story behind one of the British Indian Empire's most forbidding frontiers: Eastern Arabia. Taking the shaikhdom of Bahrain as a case study, James Onley reveals how heavily Britain's informal empire in the Gulf, and other regions surrounding British India, depended upon the assistance and support of local elites.
