Boom Amid Gloom

by N. Janardhan, Boom Amid Gloom Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Boom Amid Gloom books, The first decade of the new millennium has witnessed wide-ranging transformations in the six countries that make up the Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates). The oil boom of the last few years has served to highlight and accelerate growth in financial market activities across the Gulf region and in Islamic financial and banking activities overall. These countries entered unchartered waters through social and political experimentation, economic expansion, and asserting their influence internationally. These attempts stemmed not only from the realization that such a shift was inevitable, but also from their new found confidence that a blend of tradition and modernity can indeed survive alongside and complement each other. Boom amid Gloom is an empirical study of seven themes that help test the pulse of these countries and indicate where they are headed during the course of the next few decades. Some of these game-changers are central to understanding how the 2003-2008 oil boom ushered in and nurtured an unparalleled sense of hope in the region, even as the global economic slowdown spread gloom in many parts of the world. The book analyzes how the region stands on the threshold of evolving, from merely being oil-rich and rapidly modernizing to achieving a more balanced and sustainable model of overall development in the future.

Qatar

by Mehran Kamrava, Qatar Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Qatar books, The Persian Gulf state of Qatar has fewer than 2 million inhabitants, virtually no potable water, and has been an independent nation only since 1971. Yet its enormous oil and gas wealth has permitted the ruling al Thani family to exert a disproportionately large influence on regional and even international politics. Qatar is, as Mehran Kamrava explains in this knowledgeable and incisive account of the emirate, a "tiny giant": although severely lacking in most measures of state power, it is highly influential in diplomatic, cultural, and economic spheres. Kamrava presents Qatar as an experimental country, building a new society while exerting what he calls "subtle power." It is both the headquarters of the global media network Al Jazeera and the site of the U.S. Central Command's Forward Headquarters and the Combined Air Operations Center. Qatar has been a major player during the European financial crisis, it has become a showplace for renowned architects, several U.S. universities have established campuses there, and it will host the FIFA World Cup in 2022. Qatar's effective use of its subtle power, Kamrava argues, challenges how we understand the role of small states in the global system. Given the Gulf state's outsized influence on regional and international affairs, this book is a critical and timely account of contemporary Qatari politics and society.
