Kuwait's Foreign Policy: City-State In World Politics

Kuwait's Foreign Policy: City-State In World Politics
By Abdul-Reda Assiri
Westview Press, 1990, 193 pp. $31.50 Purchase

A Kuwaiti scholar surveys his country's policies since independence, with emphasis on the need for both flexible diplomacy and extra-regional, great-power support in times of crisis in order to survive amid larger and stronger neighbors. Bland but not superficial, the book catches the essence of the dangers and dilemmas facing Kuwait and gives a straightforward, documented account of the country's success in meeting them. There is no comparable systematic work available in a Western language.
