Monarchies and Nations: Globalisation and Identity in the Arab States of the Gulf
Paul Dresch, James Piscatori
I.B.Tauris, Jul 22, 2005 - History - 311 pages
By combining the views of anthropologists, political scientists and others, this book explores how the citizen populations of the Arab states of the Gulf define themselves in a wider context. The Gulf provides extreme examples, not only because these polities are so dependent on transnational flows of wealth and imagery, but because at home the citizen work-force is often out-numbered by migrant-labor. The resultant identity-construction embraces an acute yet singular nationalism.
