This book analyzes processes of change, stagnation and development in the countries of the gulf Co-operation Council. It shows the impact of oil revenues on population change and social development and on redefining the socio-economic role of the state. Oil could open venues for industrialization and development; however, it is argued that the lack of population policies, problems of human resources development, the rather slow change in gender relations and in political systems and heavy spending on militarization could impede development endeavors.
