  • Revolutionary Passionsby Hamit Bozarslan; Gilles Bataillon; Christophe Jaffrelot

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 53.95

    Europe has been the chief arena of revolutionary passions since the end of the eighteenth century. During this same period, and right up to the beginning of the twenty-first century, the non-European world, too, has resonated with coup attempts and revolutionary turmoil. How does one begin to understand these revolutionary passions? To what extent... more...

  • Kuwait: Prospect and Realityby H.V.F. Winstone; Zahra Freeth

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 120.00

    For many the story of this small Arabian state begins and ends with the wealth that has accrued from its vast oil deposits. But the real fascination of Kuwait lies in its geological and archaeological history; in its long struggle for survival among powerful neighbours; in its ambitious plans for industrial and economic development. This book, first... more...

  • A New Look at Kuwaitby Zahra Freeth

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 120.00

    This book, first published in 1972, describes a Kuwait normally hidden to the eyes of visitors.

  • The Manpower Problem in Kuwaitby Shamlan Y. Alessa

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 110.00

    The period since the Second World War saw a spectacular transformation of the Kuwaiti economy, making it one of the world’s major oil states with one of the highest per capita incomes. This rapid transformation, however, has brought with it attendant problems. This book, first published in 1981, examines the critical issue of the Kuwaiti labour force:... more...

  • The Oil Economy of Kuwaitby Y.S.F. Al-Sabah

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 110.00

    The economy of Kuwait is almost wholly dependent on oil. Such dependence on a depletable resource invariably stores up problems for the future, and in the case of Kuwait, these problems are aggravated by the unusually large proportion of skilled immigrant labour in the country. Dr Al-Sabah’s analysis of the economy of Kuwait, first published in 1980,... more...

  • Immigrant Labour in Kuwaitby Abdulrasool Al-Moosa; Keith Mclachlan

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 110.00

    Kuwait has among the highest levels of personal incomes in the Middle East and the best oil reserves to production ratios of all the exporting states. Its good material fortune is offset by its political precariousness engendered by Kuwaiti nationals forming a minority and a heavy dependency on immigrants to sustain the economy. Deep feelings of insecurity... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 110.00

    The purpose of this study, first published in 1985, was to investigate the management practices of the Kuwait City Park System and the relationship of these practices to user satisfaction.

  • The Millennial Cityby Markus Moos; Deirdre Pfeiffer; Tara Vinodrai

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Millennials have captured our imaginaries in recent years. The conventional wisdom is that this generation of young adults lives in downtown neighbourhoods near cafes, public transit and other amenities. Yet, this depiction is rarely unpacked nor problematized. Despite some commonalities, the Millennial generation is highly diverse and many face housing... more...
