The Persian Gulf Unveiled
The Persian Gulf Unveiled
By John Bulloch
Congdon & Weed, 1985, 224 pp

The Gulf has already been unveiled by a number of writers, but this report by an informed British journalist is nonetheless welcome, for it combines historical background with firsthand observation over many years and it is written with a light touch. The coverage is limited to the smaller Gulf states: Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. The big brothers-Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran-are recognized as by no means without influence, but for the purposes of this book are part of the world outside.
