Description: In this book, I offer an explanation for the divergent paths followed by Kuwait and the UAE. Explaining this puzzle is interesting in itself, but it also gives us a window on the underlying political economy of the Gulf. My goal is to set out a framework for understanding the distinctive politics and economics of the Gulf monarchies, one that explains how the often-competing interests of rulers, capitalists, citizens, and expatriates take shape in Gulf states with more or less political participation and in those with more or less oil rent per capita
