'Qatar continues to fascinate observers and its gas and geopolitical assets will keep it in the policy limelight for many years to come. Kristian Coates Ulrichsen's analysis of the Gulf state, besides being authoritative and ambitious, is well structured, beautifully written and perfectly balanced.' --Anoush Ehteshami, Professor, Durham University, and author of Dynamics of Change in the Persian Gulf: Political Economy, War and Revolution
'Clichéd as it may sound, there has never been a better time to publish a book on Qatar. With the heady do-no-wrong boom years firmly behind it, Qatar now seems caught in a web of international intrigue, proxy wars, and counter-espionage. Ulrichsen s latest is an excellent primer as we wait and watch events unfold.' --Christopher Davidson, author of After the Sheikhs: The Coming Collapse of the Gulf Monarchies
'Qatar and the Arab Spring is a compelling, well written analysis of one of the more remarkable sagas in Gulf politics: the rise to regional and global prominence of the State of Qatar. It aims to explain how and why Qatar used the Arab Uprisings as an opportunity to seized rather than a challenge to be contained. This accessible yet theoretically and empirically rich book should be read by anyone with an interest in the Gulf.' --Frederic Wehrey, Senior Associate in the Middle East Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and author of Sectarian Politics in the Gulf: From the Iraq War to the Arab Uprisings
