Description
This two-volume work provides a detailed assessment of different national military forces arrayed across the Gulf region. The authors (both of the Center for Strategic and International Studies) first address the regional military and security picture, addressing such issues as Islamist terrorism, growing Iranian regional power, Iraq as a power vacuum, broad regional military trends, and the changing nature of military power. Individual chapters are then offered on Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Iran, Iraq, and Yemen. Each of these chapters profiles the resources, arms, and manpower of each country's military and other security forces (including intelligence agencies) and reviews the country's particular strategic concerns and challenges.
