✏The Gulf War Did Not Take Place Book Summary : In a provocative analysis written during the unfolding drama of 1992, Baudrillard draws on his concepts of simulation and the hyperreal to argue that the Gulf War did not take place but was a carefully scripted media event -- a "virtual" war. Patton's introduction argues that Baudrillard, more than any other critic of the Gulf War, correctly identified the stakes involved in the gestation of the New World Order.

✏Oil and Politics in the Gulf Book Summary : Why in recent years have the social and economic upheavals in Kuwait and Qatar been accompanied by a remarkable political continuity? In a region of revolution and coups, these particular monarchies have somehow survived. In her analysis of political change in the Gulf, Jill Crystal investigates this apparent anomaly by examining the impact of oil on the formation and destruction of political coalitions and state institutions. She also adds to our understanding of state formation by highlighting the ways in which states and rulers structure the relationship between those with money and those with power. This updated edition includes a discussion of the Gulf War and its aftermath.

✏The Gulf War Chronicles Book Summary : There is no single source that contains the detailed minute-by-minute description of Operation Desert Storm available in "The Gulf War Chronicles." Richard S. Lowry, an accomplished military historian, went to great lengths to compile the most accurate information available about each battle, and even each encounter, of the first war with Iraq. "The Gulf War Chronicles" is an account of each event, told as if Richard were there with each of the heroes, writing the story as it happened. Richard started collecting information when Iraq invaded Kuwait in August of 1990. At first, his goal was only to understand what really happened. Conflicting information abounded. Attempting to understand and ascertain the reality of the events, Richard compiled information in so much detail, he amassed volumes of periodicals, books, government reports, and information from the Internet. He collected information from over 100 bibliographical sources. Over the years, Richard continued to cull through additional information and sources, causing a myriad of updates and rewrites. After the murders of 9-11, he decided it was time to share his research with the world. The product is "The Gulf War Chronicles."

✏UAE and the Gulf Book Summary : Around the world, a new architectural form is emerging. In public places a progressive architecture is being commissioned to promote open-ended, undetermined, lightly programmed or un-programmed interactions between people. This new phenomenon of architectural form – Pavilions, Pop-Ups and Parasols – is presaged by rapidly changing social relationships flowing from social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The nexus between real and virtual meeting is effectively being reinvented by innovative and creative architectural practices. People meet in new and responsive ways, architects meet their clients in new forums, knowledge is ‘met’ and achieved in new and interactive frameworks. It contrasts bluntly with the commercially structured interactions of shopping malls and the increasingly deliberate interactions available in cultural institutions. These experiences imbue a new type of client; casually engaged, flocking, hacking, crowd funding and self-helping.

✏The Gulf War and the Environment Book Summary : Images of the environmental disasters brought about by the Gulf War have been spread throughout the world via broadcasts by CNN and numerous other media, but the damage is more enduring than sound bites or feature articles can convey. "The Gulf War and the" "Environment" presents an in-depth analysis of the environmental disasters, their long-term consequences, and potential ways to repair some of the damage. It is essential reading for students, researchers, and other environmental professionals as a timely study of war's devastating effects on the environment. The Gulf War inflicted dramatic environmental damage upon the fragile desert and shore environments of Kuwait and northeastern Saudi Arabia. Coastal and marine environments experienced oil spills of more than 8 million barrels, which killed wildlife and damaged the fishing industry. In inland Kuwait, hundreds of oil lakes are scattered across the desert surface: these lakes emit noxious gases, drown insects and birds, and may seep to p

✏Iran s Relations with the Arab States of the Gulf Book Summary : GCC-Iran relations are at the heart of important political dynamics in the Middle East today. This is not limited to the ongoing disputes in the Gulf, one of the most important strategic locations globally. Iran and the GCC states also find themselves on opposing sides in the Syrian and to some extent the Iraqi conflicts. This volume traces the origins of the troubled relations between Iran and the majority of the GCC monarchies. It discusses not only geostrategic rivalries, but also matters of identity which have been of increased importance since 2010. While important differences are noticeable among the GCC monarchies in regard to their willingness to engage Iran, the difficult relationship between Saudi Arabia and Iran puts a strain on the possibilities for engagement between Iran and the GCC as a whole.

✏Policy and Opinion in the Gulf War Book Summary : The Persian Gulf crisis may well have been the most extensively polled episode in U.S. history as President Bush, his opponents, and even Saddam Hussein appealed to, and tried to influence, public opinion. As well documented as this phenomenon was, it remains largely unexplained. John Mueller provides an account of the complex relationship between American policy and public opinion during the Gulf crisis. Mueller analyzes key issues: the actual shallowness of public support for war; the effect of public opinion on the media (rather than the other way around); the use and misuse of polls by policy makers; the American popular focus on Hussein's ouster as a central purpose of the War; and the War's short-lived impact on voting. Of particular interest is Mueller's conclusion that Bush succeeded in leading the country to war by increasingly convincing the public that it was inevitable, rather than right or wise. Throughout, Mueller, author of War, Presidents, and Public Opinion, an analysis of public opinion during the Korean and Vietnam wars, places this analysis of the Gulf crisis in a broad political and military context, making comparisons to wars in Panama, Vietnam, Korea, and the Falklands, as well as to World War II and even the War of 1812. The book also collects nearly 300 tables charting public opinion through the Gulf crisis, making Policy and Opinion in the Gulf War an essential reference for anyone interested in recent American politics, foreign policy, public opinion, and survey research.
