The Baha'is of Iran, Transcaspia and the Caucasus Vol. 2 will help to fill a gap by assembling for the first time original material from Russian archives. These sources provide crucial information concerning the rise of the early Bahá'í community - and their precursors, the Babis - as well as their relations with local, national and foreign authorities. Volume 2 of this collection draws together diplomatic reports and official correspondence regarding the dramatic Babi upheavels, the persecution of Babis and Baha'is in Iran, and events including the landmark Ashgabat murder trial. These documents furthermore shed light on the formulation of Tsarist policy towards the Baha'is within complex and delicate context of Russo-Iranian relations in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, thus offering a fascinating glimpse into the perspective of one of the players of the 'Great Game' of diplomacy and power in the region.
