The book provides a broadly comparative and historical re-examination of the fundamental strategic dilemmas that confront the western world in the Persian Gulf region. The author’s systematic study of how the West has defined and dealt with its security interests in this region reveals three central strategic dilemmas: strategy versus capability, globalism versus regionalism and unilateralism versus collectivism.
