Pub. Date:
Writing for students and interested lay people, Casey (humanities, Graceland U. in Iowa) has penned an accessible analytical history of the Middle Eastern country of Kuwait. The material is structured similarly to other volumes in the Greenwood Histories of Modern Nations series, offering a timeline of historical events, a broadly chronological narrative that describes Kuwait's origins as a desert sheikhdom in the 19th century and its evolution through the present time, biographical information on notable people, a glossary, and a bibliographic essay.
