Book announcement: The regional order in the Gulf Region and the Middle East. Regional rivalries and security alliances

Dr Philipp O. Amour is excited to announce that his latest book on the Middle East is in production by USA: Palgrave MacMillan, to appear in 2020.

The book entitled “The Regional Order in the Gulf Region and the Middle East. Regional Rivalries and Security Alliances” contains 14 chapters that are divided into three major parts:  

  • Part I: Security alliance in the Gulf Region and the Middle East includes chapters on the KSA-led security alliance; Iran-led security alliance; and Turkey-led security alliance.
  • Part II: State actors and non-state militant actors includes chapters that exemplify the ways in which specific state-actors as well as non-state actors (e.g., PMF, PYD, and the Islamic State) project specific patterns of political and ideational processes outward from their national boarders in form of engagement, rivalry, or alienation.
  • Part III covers specific external factors (e.g., Russia, ecology, and energy), illustrating their role in regional dynamics.

The book ends with a chapter (“Regional rivalries and security alliances in the Gulf Region and the Middle East“) reflecting on the regional system in retrospect and prospect.

 

The Regional Order in the Gulf Region and the Middle East: Regional Rivalries and Security Alliances

This book (The Regional Order in the Gulf Region and the Middle East: Regional Rivalries and Security Alliances) examines the regional order in the Gulf Region and the wider Middle East, focusing on regional rivalries and security alliances. The authors analyze the regional system in terms of its general structure as well as the major inter-state and non-state security alliances. The structure of the regional system in the wider Middle East and the shake-ups it has experienced explain the ongoing regional rivalry and polarization since 2011 in hotspots such as Syria, Yemen, and Libya. As such, the various chapters address regional transition and power dynamics between and among regional great powers and non-state militant actors across the Gulf Region and the wider Middle East in terms of the alliance building, persistence, and disintegration since 2011.
