FOCUS AND PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

This book focuses on the foreign policy of one of the most important and influential states in today's international system, the People's Republic of China (PRC), and attempts to assess its relations with the Gulf and Arabian Peninsula region.

No other study has dealt comprehensively with the issues of China's foreign relations with the countries of the Gulf and Arabian Peninsula region. This work is the first comprehensive attempt at exploring China's relations with the region during and after the Cold War. It covers China's political, economic, and social interactions with Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Bahrain.
