The stability of the Persian Gulf is of great importance to the economies of the entire world--as amply demonstrated by recent events. This collection of essays surveys the state of the Persian Gulf in the wake of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War. By evaluating the geopolitical landscape of the Gulf, the book places into a clearer perspective the political, security, and diplomatic dimensions of the war. It also serves as a guide for reassessing those factors that affected the conflict's outcome and that will continue to influence developments in the region.
