This book analyses some important social, economic and political
processes of change, stagnation and development in the countries of
the Gulf Cooperation Council as a result of oil revenue. Part I
addresses the impact of oil in redefining the distributive role of
the state and in shaping economic policies. Gulf states are seeking
to industrialize as a way of diversifying from dependence on oil.
However, such an endeavour may be hampered by human resources, and
the social and political difficulties addressed in the book. Lack
of population policies, problems of national human resources
development and the slow change in gender relations is presented in
part II with reference to some country experiences. Part III deals
with the impact of the Gulf War on causing limited change in the
regional political systems and in raising security fears which have
led to a huge increase in the already high military expenditure.
