This book challenges the definitions of globalization and transnationalism as a one way process generated mainly by the Western World and the view that the latter is a twentieth century phenomenon. The authors analyze and map historical and contemporary manifestations of transnational networks within the Arab Gulf and beyond, linking them to wider debates on society, identity and political culture.
In the context of current theoretical debates, empirical case studies are presented to explore how transnationalism is localized, through the incorporation of outside agents and networks into the history, economy and society of a number of Gulf societies and how the local political, religious and cultural flows beyond the Arab world.
