Format: Hardcover
This book provides a very good insight into how the Gulf leadership views the Arab Spring. The author is someone who understands the Gulf perspective having previously served as the Economy Minister in Qatar. The book should serve as a wake up call for the Gulf leadership whose countries face a number of social and economic challenges. The book also attempts to lay out economic ideas for the future. Policy makers and academics would do well to read this and learn from someone who understands the Gulf and the wider Middle East from the inside.

By Ryan Terry Bohl - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I get that the writer, a Qatari, would not want to offend his dear emir by pointing out the shortcomings of the current government, and besides that failure it's a pretty decent book, but the region does not need more "yes men" saying people should "trust their leaders," whose model of government has gone about as far as it can go these days. True change involves radical proposals to remove powers from the emir and his cronies; Mohammed al-Thani, a member of the ruling family, perhaps isn't ready for that.
