Despite its shortcomings, Small Security Dilemma: Kuwait after 1991is worth reading to augment the scope of studies on security, small states and the Gulf region. Its
compartmentalized approach to sources of small state insecurities (military, economic,
social, political and environmental) and a holistic proposal to safeguard security is quite
stimulating for further research. Finally, yet importantly, the clear and flowing language of the book provides an enjoyable and comprehensive reading for those who are interested in Kuwait’s security.
