Browne ( 1862-1925) was a British scholar who specialized in Persian studies. He deplored the negative aspects of British and Russian influence which permeated so much on 19th century Persian history, and wrote many controversial essays in defence of the constitutional revolution of 1906.
He is considered one of the greatest champions of Persian studies. He wrote his monumental work entitled “A Literary History of Persia”.
