In command of the world's largest hydrocarbon reserves, the six monarchies comprising the Gulf Cooperation Council - Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates - play a pivotal role in Middle Eastern and global politics. This event will launch Power and Politics in the Persian Gulf Monarchies (C Hurst & Co Publishers Ltd), which combines comprehensive analyses of the six states, examining their historical backgrounds, political structures, economies and future prospects.
