Iran, Iraq, and the legacies of war by Lawrence G Potter( Book )
18 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Iraq and Iran are the two most important states in the Gulf region, given their population size, military strength, and the potential threat they pose to other states in the region and the United States. This book enhances our understanding of the troubled relationship between Iran and Iraq, placing it in historical context, examining the rapid deterioration leading to the eight-year war that started in 1980 and the effects of that trauma, and exploring the ongoing issues that currently bedevil bilateral relations. The authors cover such central issues as how each side has sought to use opposition groups in the other state to weaken it, ethnic divisions, the role of outside states (especially the United States), and an account of how the war affected a generation of Iraqis and Iranians. The role of the U.S. in the region and how U.S. policy has affected the two states are also considered. This book provides a basis for understanding the background of a tumultuous relationship that is entering a new era."--Jacket
The Persian Gulf at the millennium : essays in politics, economy, security, and religion ( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Persian Gulf at the Millennium, the most prominent Gulf specialists from both the Western world and the Persian Gulf are brought together to look at this extraordinarily active and influential part of the world. The scholars identify and examine the issues that have the potential to affect future developments in the region, including ongoing rapid demographic changes, the relationship of the oil market to political stability and progress, the resurgence of Islam as a political force, the often heavy expenditures on defense, and new geostrategic realities after the end of the Cold War
Security in the Persian Gulf : origins, obstacles, and the search for consensus ( Book )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a follow-up volume to the acclaimed The Persian Gulf at the Millennium: Essays in Politics, Economy, Security and Religion, published by St. Martin's Press in 1997. The same editors, who direct the Gulf/2000 Project at Columbia University, have assembled a number of leading experts on the Persian Gulf to reflect on factors affecting security there in the twenty-first century. Most contributors are from the region itself and for the first time share the results of ongoing research with an outside audience. The chapters profile the diverse society in the Gulf and the historical pattern of Gulf security, before focusing on current security concerns between Iran and the Arab states. They explore the mutual perceptions of the peoples of the Gulf today and the role of the new generation in shaping its future
