Sample text

And Wolff realized this too. In Iran, he embarked on numerous projects and carried through more schemes than had any British Minister for many years. The reasons for Wolff’s success where others had failed lay in his experience, energy, tenacity, and perhaps his prestige. It should be added that the moment was opportune too. e. the Shah’s dread of Russia’s reaction, notwithstanding the fact that the ‘assurance’ which he eventually gave the Shah was neither as strong nor as clear as the Shah had always demanded.

To be implemented, an undertaking of this nature required first a change of heart by the Shah and his officials; second, the creation of a machinery to administer justice and monitor its infringements. As yet, these elements were lacking in Iran. Given his astuteness and knowledge of Iran’s social conditions, Wolff too must have been aware of the impracticality of the Proclamation.

He still claimed for himself an absolute right to the land, the people, and their property. 95 The question was therefore of paramount importance.
