“No one has been a closer observer of the Gulf Cooperation Council for the 35 years of its existence than Joseph Kechichian. He knows the GCC and the countries making it up intimately. His analysis is a vital contribution for understanding the future of the organization and the challenges it faces.” F. Gregory Gause, III, Bush School of Government and Public Service, Texas A&M University
“Another of Joseph Kéchichian’s skillfully written books. Authoritative and highly readable, it explains the security challenges, trends of cooperation, and the creation of a security community in the Gulf region. This book is indispensable for understanding where the security community of the Gulf is heading.” Francisco Salvador Barroso Cortés, Higher Institute of Political and Administrative Sciences, Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK), Lebanon
“This volume will become the indispensable reference on the GCC. More timely than ever, this comprehensive assessment is required reading for anyone wishing to make sense of the geopolitical chess game currently being played out in the Gulf. No contrived theories or an ax to grind – just a brilliant, perceptive insight as to how things work in this troubled part of the world.” Robert E. Looney, Professor of National Security Affairs, Naval Postgraduate School
