Speaking at the commencement convocation, he jokingly referred to himself as keynote speaker Bill Cosby's "opening act. Despite the attention, Ryanen-Grant maintained a sense of balance and remarkable maturity. When asked how he managed to walk away with the Class of 's top academic honor, he replied in an interview with the Berkeleyan: "The irony is I'm much more content with my life than I was before.
I now know what's important in the grand scheme: basically, solid and fulfilling relationships. My mother, for example -- we now see each other all of the time, we talk on the phone almost every day, she drives me to the doctor. This has reinvigorated our relationship. Which doesn't mean that essays and classes and tests aren't important, but they exist in a limited sphere.
I realized that in five or ten years, it's not going to matter one whit whether I got an A or a B on a particular French examination, say, but my friends, this community, will affect my happiness for the balance of my life. Peter Hanff, deputy director, Bancroft Library, says that "all who had the privilege of working with Ryanen-Grant were aware of his inherent graciousness, his wry sense of humor and his good-spirited participation in every area of his activities.
We will miss him deeply, but consider ourselves tremendously fortunate to have been his friends and co-workers. Ryanen-Grant and his mother made plans for a Celebration of Life in his honor and memory.
The gathering will take place at 2 p. Friends will speak briefly; others who wish to share some of their experiences with Ryanen-Grant will also have the opportunity to do so.

Leaving aside what Islamic law justifies this the ruling family owned land which was in great demand and extorted rack renting rents from their tenants. In the al Khalifah controlled port of Zubarah, whose ownership was contested with Qatar, rose in revolt.
He also asked for aid from Iran. Before either could respond Muhammad mobilised sufficient force to capture the city but in a move to detach himself from Britain attempted to ally himself with Iran.

When it capitulated Pelly simply dismisses Mohammad and installed his brother Ali. Regime change at the whim of British was always likelihood. In a British flotilla arrived and allowed supporters of Isa bin Ali al Khalifah to seize control and install their man as Sheik. Bu the British demanded legal responsibility for the judicial control of their subjects, not the local authorities. The Political Resident in Bahrain assumed not only judicial control over British citizens but also for the native courts and law enforcement.
Formally Bahrain was part of the Ottoman Empire but in the British government sent a note to the authorities in Constantinople [Istanbul] stating:. They refused to withdraw their claim to Bahrain but assured the British they would not force the issue. That I will on no account enter into any agreement or correspondence with any power other than the British Government.

That without the assent of the British Government I will not consent to the residence within my territory of the Agent of any other Government. That I will on no account cede, sell or mortgage or otherwise give for occupation any part of my territory save to the British Government. This agreement was the model for treaties with seven other rulers along the coast. The Resident was until based in Bushire on the Iranian side; he then moved to Bahrain and remained there until In a rebellion against the Sheik broke out. The British Agent in the Gulf helped crush it leaving considerable casualties.
Ottoman forces then tried to take the island but were defeated by the British. Different nations give different meanings to the word. But all meanings have one element in common, viz, that a protected state has no freedom of action in foreign affairs, except through or by the remission of the protecting State. They demanded equality with the other rulers in the Gulf, the right to appoint the Majlis the toothless parliament free from any British interference, the right to deal directly with London and ownership of the Qatari port of Zubarah this was eventually recognised at Qatari in by the International Court of Justice.
Two years later the British authorities in London and Delhi agreed he would be responsible to the Government of India unless affairs had international repercussions when the Foreign Office in London would step in. Personally also I know my own work will be greatly facilitated if Sheikh Isa were to occasionally wake up and see a warship lying out in his harbour. Its first meeting was marked by angry demonstrations.
The British decided they wanted Isa to quit and did not want Abdullah to succeed. When it suited them they were prepared to acknowledge the grievances of the Shia population to use against the Sheik. In December a new agent arrived, Major Daly, who received a deputation whose address stated:.
They have no refuge, the evidence of none is accepted, their property is subject to plunder and themselves liable to mal-treatment every moment. Daly even gave refuge to one man whose father had been killed. Scared too by this development the Sheik turned to Daly for advice. In February a Shia villager was rescued from arrest by his friends and family. Anger exploded with shops in Manamah shutting and the bazaar coming to a halt. Hamad agreed to them but there was widespread suspicion he would do nothing about them. The reforms Knox outlined included that the political agent would be responsible for the political and administrative as well as judicial affairs of all foreigners, a customs service would be created ending al Kalifah personal control of customs and its revenues, the royal family could no longer simply take what they wanted from their subjects, there was no right of association except by the sanction of the political agent and Prince Hamad and lastly, while Sunni and Shia should now both pay taxes Britain recognised there was no equality between them and Bahrain was a Sunni dominated kingdom.

A young Oxford graduate and former administrative officer in the British Colonial Service, Charles Belgrave, answered and found himself being interviewed by the British agent in Bahrain. The Sheik wanted an English official to be his personal adviser. Belgrave got the post and effectively ran the country from until
