Today the question of British interests in the Mediterranean and Middle East cannot be discussed without considering the past history of the British relations with the area. These relations have been of two kinds; relations with the states and the peoples and the relations with other European Powers seeking power or influence there. This paper is a discussion of Great Britain's relations with the European Powers seeking influence in the nineteenth century Middle East, then called the Near East. The embassy of Sir William White has been the focal point used from which to view these activities.
