A decade after the war for Kuwait and two decades after the Iran-Iraq war, the wider Gulf region is mired in internal, regional and international conflicts. The contributors present analytical perspectives—including solution-oriented assessments—to identify major causes for actual and potential conflicts throughout the Gulf. Original essays cover Iranian, Iraqi, Saudi and Arab Gulf States’ political agendas on the domestic, regional and international fronts, assessments of pending border disputes, relations among the Gulf states themselves, and their ties with several Western powers. The study closes with four "trends" chapters looking at the 2000-2010 period.
