Abstract:

The purpose of the Area Handbook is to acquaint the reader with the principal economic, political, and sociological elements governing the development of these 13 societies. Special emphasis has been placed on those forces for continuity and change which are most important in shaping contemporary life in the Peripheral States religious schisms, a tradition of tribalism, the historical influence of Great Britain, the advent of petroleum production, and the rise of Arab nationalism.
