Kuwait remains pivotal to U.S. efforts to secure the Persian Gulf region because of its consistent cooperation with U.S. strategy and operations in the region and its proximity to both Iran and Iraq. Kuwait has a Defense Cooperation Agreement (DCA) with the United States dating back to the aftermath of the February 1991 U.S.-led expulsion of Iraqi occupation forces from Kuwait. The pact enables the United States to maintain forces in Kuwait that are crucial to the U.S. ability to project power in the region and to combat against the Islamic State. Kuwait has received no U.S. foreign assistance in recent years; it has been a significant donor to U.S. operations in the region since Iraq’s 1990 invasion of Kuwait. This book reviews the conditions, issues and foreign relations of Kuwait. (Imprint: Novinka)
