Reviews

“This informed and informative book can be placed squarely at the intersection of the scholarship on international political economy and Gulf studies. This fact alone makes it a notable contribution to the burgeoning literature on the Gulf region. It also makes it a necessary one.” (Rory Miller, Journal of Arabian Studies, Vol. 7 (02), September, 2018)


“The Gulf States in International Political Economy by Kristian Coates Ulrichsen is a welcome addition to scholarship on the growing economic and political power of the six states of the Gulf Cooperation Council: Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman. … Ulrichsen’s treatment of the Gulf states is thorough and well-informed. This book will be an important reference for scholars and policymakers interested in GCC politics, finance and international relations.” (Dr. Karen E. Young, global Policy, globalpolicyjournal.com, June, 2016)
