From projecting ideology and influence, to maintaining a notion of ‘Gulfness’ through the selective
exclusion or inclusion of certain beliefs, cultures and people, the notion of Gulfization is
increasingly pertinent as Gulf countries occupy a greater political and economic role in wider
Middle East politics.

This volume discusses the notion of Gulfization, and examines how thoughts, ideologies, way
of life and practises are transmitted, changed, and transduced inside and outside the Gulf. From
historical perspectives such as the impact of the 1952 Egyptian Revolution in Yemen, to studies on
the contemporary projection of Salafism or hyper-nationalism in the Gulf monarchies, this book
explores, contends, and critiques the transnational and regional currents that are making, and
unmaking, the new Gulf Moment.

This volume is based on the 28th Gulf Conference held at the University of Exeter in 2016.
