During the darkest days of the Second World War, a select group of people gathered together in Mayfair to listen to a series of secret lectures organized by the Royal Central Asian Society, now known as the Royal Society for Asian Affairs. LecturersMoreDuring the darkest days of the Second World War, a select group of people gathered together in Mayfair to listen to a series of secret lectures organized by the Royal Central Asian Society, now known as the Royal Society for Asian Affairs. Lecturers and their handpicked audience examined fast-moving events in the Middle East, Persia, and Russia with the intention to propose strategies for Britain’s postwar international role.

Secrecy surrounded these lectures—the scripts were not published in the Society’s journal, and the audience was warned not to reveal the topics discussed outside the Clarges Street premises. These 70-year-old lectures, only recently rediscovered in the Society’s archives, have a peculiar poignancy and relevance in understanding today’s unquiet Middle East and how wartime events and strategies were to shape postwar policy with regard to Arab nationalism and Arab unity.
