Persian Gulf: Geo-Politics and Wars

Ashraf Ashrafpour (Editor) Shrikant Paranjpe (Foroward)

The book examines the geo-political importance of the Persian Gulf region and wars in the region. Pointing out that the Persian Gulf region is very rich in oil and gas reserves and so is seen as extremely significant , it views this as the reason why the region has witnessed hegemonic aspirations by regional and outside powers. It analyses the geo-politics of the region’s states, the regional order maintained and contemporary conflicts. It especially assesses the geo-strategic importance of the Strait of Hormuz and the US’ interests in the region. It views the impact of the past wars on the region, like the Iran-Iraq war and the US war on Iraq.
