To what extent did the creation of oil economies influence the society, culture and politics of the Gulf?
Issues to think about for discussion include the essay question most related to this topic: To what extent did the creation of oil economies influence the society, culture and politics of the Gulf? So for example, how was the Gulf transformed from the frontier of three different empires or states to leaders of Gulf kingdoms/sheikdoms being involved in state and nation- building processes after the discovery of oil?
As part of this, what other processes linked to oil also contributed to state formation? For example, religion (Wahhabism in Saudi Arabia), violence (worker’s strikes and riots in Bahrain), urbanization/segregation of oil companies from the Arab workforce, immigration of Arabs from elsewhere, and of course the continued topic from the past two weeks of pan- Arabism/Baathism/Nasserist ideologies/anti-Israeli rhetoric and action.
