Arabia Without Sultans, Volume 1818

Front Cover
Saqi, 2002 - Political Science - 540 pages
Fred Halliday deconstructs the romantic mythology that shrouds the deserts of the Arabian peninsula. He looks at how old myths have been replaced by new ones, such as how the Sheikh of Arabia squeezes the powerless Western oil consumer. Halliday's presentation of the political and social life of the Arabian peninsula is situated in the global context of Western postcolonial strategy and the political economy of oil.
