This book offers new insight into the end of the British Empire in the Middle East. It takes a fresh look at the relationship between Britain and the Gulf rulers at the height of the British Empire, and how its effects are still felt internationally today.
'Sato has written an important book that is readily accessible to non-specialists and the broader public and deserves a wide readership among the policy-making community, both in Britain and in the Gulf. At a time when the phrase 'east of Suez' has re-entered the British government lexicography and Britain has returned to permanent military bases in the Gulf for the first time since 1971, Sato's reassessment of Britain's regional withdrawal holds particular resonance.'
