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 (“The Regional System in the Gulf Region and the Middle East in Retrospect and Prospect“) reflecting on the regional rivalries and security alliances in the Gulf Region and the Middle East in retrospect and prospect.
