Product Description

Review

'… a welcome addition to the literature and should be read by any student of the Gulf oil states.' Charles Gurdon, Business History

'This book is vital for an understanding of Kuwait's political economy - or economic politics.' Theodore Draper, New York Review of Books

'This book should appeal to several kinds of audiences: regionalists interested in the Middle East and Persian Gulf States; international relations specialists who want to know more about this strategic area and would like some solid local history upon which to anchor their postwar analyses; and theorists of state development … ' Gregory Nowell, American Political Science Review

Book Description

This book asks why in recent years the social and economic upheavals in Kuwait and Qatar have been accompanied by a remarkable political continuity. Professor Crystal investigates this apparent anomaly by examining the impact of oil on the formation and destruction of political coalitions and state institutions.

Condensed 14 Dec. 2012
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book used Qatar and Kuwait as a compare and contrast to provide some deep understanding of the gulf. It is a great boo, but can be hard to follow at times because its so condensed. I read this book for a graduate course on the Arab gulf. It is an older version so it does not speak about the aftermath of the Kuwait-Iraq war. But overall a good read.
