Index

“It is no secret that Qatar has experienced rapid modernization and vast societal changes in the twenty-first century due to its place in the global market. This volume brings together insightful and innovative essays to provide a holistic analysis of the processes and effects of globalization as they play out in different political, social, and economic arenas in Qatar. From media to water to human rights to information and communication technologies to the World Cup, this volume offers a thorough examination of the shifting backdrop in Qatar and how it impacts people’s everyday lives and their livelihoods. Scholars and practitioners across disciplines who are interested in global flows and transnationalism will find this volume of the utmost importance.”
- Cortney Hughes Rinker, Associate Professor of Anthropology, George Mason University

“Dr. Haitham Alkhateeb's forthcoming book, Qatar: Political, Economic and Social Issues, is a compelling and comprehensive assessment of the modern challenges faced by the state in the Gulf. Facing unprecedented political and economic uncertainty, Dr. Alkhateeb’s expertise in mathematics and knowledge of the nation, and broader regions, offers a timely analysis that informs both scholars and the broader audience. This book comes at an ideal time, when analysis of Qatar is short, but public and political interest in the small nation is tall and broad, and Dr. Alkhateeb possesses the skill set to shed needed light.”
- Khaled A. Beydoun, Associate Professor of Law, University of Arkansas-Fayetteville School of Law, author of American Islamophobia: Understanding the Roots and Rise of Fear

“This book provides a glance into the economy, society, and politics of the rich and fast-growing state of Qatar. It highlights and documents breathtaking changes currently underway in the GCC region and sheds light on regional challenges faced by the Qatari society and leadership, stemming from rising friction with neighbors. A must read for those interested in understanding sociopolitical changes taking place in one of the fastest developing countries of the Middle East.”
- Louay M. Safi, Professor of Political Science and Islamic Thought, Hamad Bin Khalifa University

“Providing incisive commentaries on how Qatar has responded to the blockade imposed on it in 2017 by neighboring states and much more, this volume will be of great interest to scholars and students, policymakers and practitioners, and an essential tool for understanding Qatar as the 2022 FIFA World Cup looms into view.”
- Kristian Coates Ulrichsen, Fellow for the Middle East, Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy

“Despite its small population, gas-rich Qatar has emerged as a major player on the world scene and has hence attracted powerful opponents. The original story expertly told here of how Qatar has successfully survived an attempt to crush it through blockades and boycotts led by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain sheds loads of illumination on the contemporary structures of international legitimacy and how a canny political leadership can appeal to them to strengthen the international rule of law.”
- Juan Cole, Richard P. Mitchell Collegiate Professor of History, University of Michigan
