Since the early 1970s, the Arabian Gulf has been one of the most promising new areas of research in ancient Near-Eastern archaeology. Until now, however, there has been no attempt to synthesize the archaeology and history of this region from the beginnings of human settlement to the rise of Islam. The first volume of this comprehensive study covers the Pleistocene to the Achaemenian period. It includes almost all the published evidence for the prehistory and history of the Arabian Gulf. The period from Alexander the Great to the coming of Islam, including full discussion of the history of Christianity in the area, comprises the second volume, in which Potts combines the literary evidence from Greek, Roman, Syriac, and Arabic sources with an overview of the relevant archaeological evidence.

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries urgently need a dramatic increase in electricity production to support rapid economic and social development in the coming decades. Yet, the populations of the GCC countries are among the highest users of energy in the world today, due to the harsh climate and to inefficiencies in transmission and consumption. In this volume, experts discuss the future composition of the Gulf energy sector, the challenges faced in meeting growing energy requirements, the need for greater energy conservation, and ways of reducing the anticipated surge in demand. The region will depend on a variety of energy sources, including alternatives such as renewable energy, and nuclear energy - which, in a vitally important region such as the Gulf, will have technical, geopolitical and strategic concerns that must be addressed.

This book is a study of the seafaring communities of the Arabian Gulf and Oman in the past 150 years. It is an analysis of the significance of the dhow and how coastal communities interacted in the long tradition of seafaring. In addition to the archival material, this work is based on extensive field research, recording the voices of seamen in over 200 interviews. The book provides an integrated study of dhow activity in the area concerned and examines the consciousness of belonging to a wider culture of the Indian ocean as expressed in boat-building traditions, navigational techniques, crew organisation and port towns. The book brings together the different measures of time past, the sea, its people and their material culture. The Arabian Gulf and Oman have traditionally shared a common destiny within the Western Indian Ocean. The seasonal monsoon winds were fundamental to the physical and human unities of the seafaring communities, producing a way of life in harmony with the natural world, a world which was abruptly changed with the discovery of oil. What remains is memories of a seafaring past, a history of traditions and customs recorded here in the recollections of a dying generation and in the rich artistic heritage of the region.
