The economies of the Arab states of the Gulf have gone
through considerable changes in the last decade, spurred
by high oil prices and ambitious diversification plans.
Large-scale immigration provided the labour force while
capital inflows and financial development leveraged oil
wealth to finance diversification. The collapse in real
estate prices around the world followed by the global
crisis slowed growth and raised questions on the
appropriateness of what has been dubbed the -GCC model-.
This book analyses these issues and combines data and
econometric analysis with theoretical discussions. It
concludes with a discussion of the importance of the GCC
for the wider region.

Turkey-EU relations are currently in a state of flux.
Turkey and the EU have moved apart in their political
aspirations after accession talks faced a stalemate due
to the Republic of Cyprus EU accession as a divided
island. The EU has been shaken to its very core by the
worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and as
a result the enlargement of the EU has dropped down the
agenda. In contrast Turkey has become an economic
powerhouse in an extremely volatile region. The Turkish
government has been following a consistent policy of
establishing itself as the leader in its region and as a
result a significant part of the Turkish population no
longer sees EU accession as the only option to secure
long term economic growth and political stability. The
book explores the current challenges as well as
opportunities facing the Turkey-EU relations.

This book sets out a road map for the provision of urban
access for all. Cities in developing countries have
followed a path of dependency on transport systems
dominated by car usage and favouring the middle classes.
It looks at ways in which policies can be formed in the
developing world to prevent cities in these countries
from following the same trajectory, and to help them
shift away from those policies which are embedded in
current financial systems. The book brings together
expertise from different fields to show how small changes
can incentivise positive developments in urban transport
and create truly accessible cities.

British women writers were enormously influential in the
creation of public opinion and political ideology during
the years from 1780 to 1830. The author demonstrates the
many ways in which they attempted to shape British public
policy and cultural behavior in the areas of religious
and governmental reform, education, philanthropy, and
patterns of consumption. She argues that the theoretical
paradigm of the -doctrine of the separate spheres- may no
longer be valid. Surveying all the genres of
literature, she shows how women writers promoted a new
concept of the ideal woman as rationally educated,
sexually self-disciplined, and above all, virtuous. This
New Woman, these writers said, was better suited to
govern the nation than were its current fiscally
irresponsible, lecherous, and corruptible male rulers.

This book is the principal source for the history of
events not only in Ireland itself but also in what is now
Scotland up to 911. It incorporated annals compiled on
Iona up to c. 740 a monastery which played a major role
in the history of Ireland, of the Picts to its east and,
from 635 to 664, of Northumbria up to c. 740. It is thus
a crucial source for both Ireland and Britain, and from
c. 740 to 911 it still records some events outside

The Imam-caliph al-Muizz li-Din Allah (r. 953-975),
founder of the city of Cairo, transformed the emergent
Fatimid state from a regional power of limited influence
to an impressive Mediterranean empire whose authority
extended from the shores of the Atlantic to the Indian
Ocean. His vision and dynamism contributed to the high
watermark of Fatimid success in establishing a Shi-i
empire, which contributed to the cultural and
intellectual efflorescence of the Muslim world. This book
provides one of the most comprehensive accounts of al-
Quiz’s reign. It demonstrates a critical discernment
regarding the value and limitations of his sources that
is unusual amongst Muslim historians of the time.
Moreover, he records a number of official documents,
letters and sermons in their entirety, often making his
writings the only surviving source for this material.
