Ulrichsen, Kristian (2011) Insecure gulf: the end of certainty and the transition to the post-oil era. Columbia University Press. ISBN 9780231702263
Increasingly long-term, nonmilitary challenges have remade security concerns in the Persian Gulf. The protection of food, water, and energy, the management and mitigation of environmental degradation and climate change, demographic pressures and the youth boom, the reformulation of structural deficiencies, and the fallout from progressive state failure in Yemen all require a broad, global, and multidimensional approach to achieving security in the Gulf. While traditional threats from Iraq and Iran, nuclear proliferation, and transnational terrorism remain robust, new challenges could potentially destabilize the redistributive mechanisms of state and society in the Arab oil monarchies. Insecure Gulf explores this new reality, specifically, the relationship between traditional and recent security issues within the changing political economy of the Gulf Corporation Council states.
