"Within the past year...significant developments have affected the Soviet position in the Arabian Peninsula....To understand these developments, we need a detailed background of the politics of the Arabian Peninsula, and this study by Mark Katz provides just such a background."--Robert O. Freedman, AEI Foreign Policy, March 1986.
"The book does not overplay, but certainly does not overlook, Soviet expansionism. It tends to confirm what might be called the balanced conventional wisdom on the subject, and that, in view of the impressive research, is in itself a significant conclusion."--John C. Campbell, Foreign Affairs, Summer 1986.
"This is a very useful, exhaustively documented book..."--Stephen Page, Middle East Journal, Autumn 1986.
"In this admirably balanced and informative study, Mark N. Katz examines Soviet foreign policy toward the eight countires of the Arabian Peninsula."--Donald S. Zagoria, Middle East Review, Winter 1986-87.
Mark Katz...has produced a comprehensive, well-researched and lucid analysis of Soviet relations with the eight states of the Arabian Peninsula....Katz has made good use of Arabic and Soviet materials, as well as of visits to most of the countries in the region."--Fred Halliday, Soviet Studies, January 1987.
