Kuwait Amid War, Peace and Revolution: 1979-1991 and New Challenges
Kuwait Amid War, Peace and Revolution explores Kuwaiti internal
security challenges including terrorism, sabotage and subversion,
and, using untapped Kuwaiti government sources, examines policy
responses such as mass deportations and special security trials.
The study details how turmoil in neighbouring states such as Iraq
and Iran, and deep ethnic and religious tensions inside Kuwait,
shape Kuwait's threat environment. The study probes the period
of the Iranian revolution, Iran-Iraq war and Iraqi invasion, and
applies the lessons learned to new challenges in Kuwait, including
