The researcher deals with one of the highly important topics which is the British invasion of the Arab Gulf at the beginning of the seventeenth century and with what it had produced of negative effects on the political and economic conditions of the Arab Gulf represented in the Persian ambitions for seizing the east coast and its islandsand the ambitions of the Persian ruling families to impose its control on other areas in addition to its control over its waters.
The Arab Gulf is a vital part in the great Arab homeland and is deeply rooted in its ancient history and an honourable pillar in its Islamic history. The paper tackles the stages of the British politics in the Arab Gulf from the early seventeenth century to the mid nineteenth century. It sheds light on the existing struggle between Britain and the other invading powers of the Arab Gulf and on the complicit role played by the Persia in offering full assistance to the centre of the British politics represented by the Easter Indian-British Company and its ability to extend its influence throughout the Arab Gulf, and at its foremost, Persia and the East Coast.
