Despite growing interest in the Baha'is of Iran, research on the history of this often-persecuted minority community has been limited by the accessibility of sources. 'The Baha'is of Iran, Transcaspia and the Caucasus' will help to fill this gap by assembling for the first time original material from Russian archives. Volume 1 presents the more personal letters of Russian army officers and officials describing developments concerning the Baha'is in Iran and Russia, while Volume 2 draws together official reports and correspondence detailing events including the dramatic Babi upheavals and the landmark Ashgabat murder trial. Analytical introductions provide essential background information to accompany the texts, making this set an invaluable resource for anyone interested in Babi and Baha'i history, the history of religion and minorities, Russo-Persian relations or Qajar Iran.
