The Gulf Yearbook is an annual series that focuses on the events that have impacted on the Gulf region throughout the previous year. In a series of analytical chapters, the books look at key issues such as political reform, economic development, the threat of terrorism and the state of relations between the GCC countries and Iraq, Iran and Yemen. Furthermore, an in-depth look is provided at the developments within the GCC states themselves from a domestic, economic and foreign relations perspective. These items are complimented by a timeline of events as well as additional contributions looking at the Gulf and its relationship to the broader international environment. Written by prominent scholars, subject experts and GRC’s own in-house research team, The Gulf Yearbook is a comprehensive, objective and important reference that is quickly becoming a standard guide for those interested and concerned about Gulf issues.
