About this title


The border dispute between Qatar and Bahrain simmered for more than 50 years before it was adjudicated by the International Court of Justice—a process that took ten long years. This authoritative book documents the controversy in the context of its imperial roots, the countries' ruling families, the discovery of oil, and the political destinies of the emerging Gulf states. This color illustrated historical account includes the forensic evidence that identified key forgeries in the case.

Mr. Al-Arayed presented Bahrain's application for UN membership to the Security Council in 1971, and often represents Bahrain at international conferences such as the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.
