About this book

This book examines the regional order in the Gulf Region and the wider Middle East, focusing on regional rivalries and security alliances. The authors analyze the regional system in terms of its general structure as well as the major inter-state and non-state security alliances. The structure of the regional system in the wider Middle East and the shake-ups it has experienced explain the ongoing regional rivalry and polarization since 2011 in hotspots such as Syria, Yemen, and Libya. As such, the various chapters address regional transition and power dynamics between and among regional great powers and non-state militant actors across the Gulf Region and the wider Middle East in terms of the alliance building, persistence, and disintegration since 2011.

Reviews


“This book presents original and detailed insights into the relations between the dominant states of the Middle East. It elucidates the complex and dynamic competition between four region-wide actors: the alliance between Turkey-Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood, Iran and its non-state Islamist clients, the anti-Islamist bloc of Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Egypt, and finally Israel, the only regional superpower.” — Bernard Haykel, Professor of Near Eastern Studies, Princeton University


 “This volume contains rigorously researched and thematically rich contributions that advance our understanding of the regional rivalries and security alliances that have reshaped the regional order in the Middle East since 2011, and is a resource that will appeal to scholars, students, and practitioners seeking to place the Middle East in comparative and analytical context.” — Kristian Coates Ulrichsen is Fellow for the Middle East, Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy 


“This book brings together a wide range of international contributors to look at the Arab Gulf region in the context of the broader Middle East from a variety of perspectives. The volume’s focus on systemic, regional ways of understanding the Gulf states is a refreshing and helpful way of understanding contemporary Arab regional dynamics.” — David Mednicoff, Chair, Department of Judaic and Near Eastern Studies, UMass-Amherst
