About this title


'This volume brings together some of the most important articles on the Persian Gulf over the last two decades. All of the articles in the volume have been central to our understanding of the region, and some have been game-changers. For anyone interested in knowledge of the Middle East in general and the Persian Gulf in particular, this book is essential reading.'
- Mehran Kamrava, School of Foreign Services, Qatar

This insightful research collection examines the internal and external transformation of the Arab Gulf states and their repositioning within the global order. It explores the interlocking challenges of transition toward post-rentier structures of governance and assesses the domestic, regional and global implications. A multi-level approach begins with sections on domestic political and economic reform and the reformulation of domestic agendas to reflect new issues such as climate-change. Subsequent sections cover the evolution of regional security agendas, new trends in foreign policy and the Arab Gulf states' rapid emergence as global actors and provide a frank portrayal of this dynamic region.

This essential single volume, with an original introduction by the editor, will be of great interest to researchers and scholars as well as practitioners involved in this field.

36 articles, dating from 1990 to 2010
Contributors include: M. Al-Rasheed, J. Crystal, K. Coates Ulrichsen, C. Davidson, F.G. Gause, M. Herb, S. Hertog, T.C. Jones, G. Nonneman, G. Okruhlik
