The book functions as a reliable overall introduction and guide to international Arab politics.

Drawing on a wide range of Arabic and Western sources and his own experience, and providing in-depth comparisons of six key Arab states--Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia--Faour challenges the notion that Desert Storm solved more problems than it created.
