Australian Left Review

Article Title

Arabia without Sultans


David McKnight


This article was originally intended as a review of that excellent book by Fred Halliday, Arabia Without Sultans.

Hence, my “ book review” has, as its main task, an account of some very important developments in the south of Arabia (defined as the peninsula including Saudi Arabia, North and South Yemen, Oman and the Trucial or Gulf States).
