After the Sheikhs The Coming Collapse of the Gulf Monarchies
by Christopher Davidson
London: C. Hurst & Co. Publishers Ltd, 2012
In this book Christopher Davidson contends that the collapse of these kings, emirs, and sultans is going to happen, and was always going to. While the revolutionary movements in North Africa, Syria, and Yemen will undeniably serve as important, if indirect, catalysts for the coming upheaval, many of the pressures that were building up in the Arab republics are now also very much present in the Gulf monarchies.
