Transnational Connections and the Arab Gulf clearly evidences the existence of such a phenomenon as far back as the 19th century, leaving one wondering what it is that worries us about this centuries-old phenomenon; how does globalization pose a threat to a region that has been characterized by its heterogeneity and its strong links with the outside world for more than years? In addition, the volume forces the reader to consider the other side of the globalization coin; while it is true that the phenomenon has penetrated the region, it is also true that globalization is a two-way street - the Gulf States themselves are not entirely innocent of riding the wave by exporting their own culture, particularly their religious beliefs, abroad.
Transnational Connections and the Arab Gulf is sure to induce a number of varied responses. At its best, the book is a remarkable compendium of alternative views on the Gulf that is sure to satisfy students of all disciplines, particularly those of the transnationalism phenomenon.
Even at its worst, the book is at the very least a welcome addition and adds a rejuvenating flavour to the scant literature on the Gulf region. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
