Defence policy-makers from Britain and the Gulf here analyze different aspects of British policy and its repercussions for Gulf security. Seeking to nurture defence and security dialogue, contributors examine both immediate and potential threats to Gulf security and underline the need for the Gulf countries to develop a greater range of consultative mechanisms. This book aims to offer useful perspectives on some of the more critical issues involved and provides insight on the views held by prominent decision-makers, including Lord Robertson, General Sir Charles Guthrie, H.H. Sheikh Salman of Bahrain and H.H. Sheikh Salem of Kuwait.
