Arabian Peninsula Background Notes

This series of background notes is intended to provide information on various events, developments, and personalities in the recent history and politics of the Arabian Peninsula. The material they contain is derived from secondary publications and unpublished matter, archival sources, and the author's personal observations and interviews. They lay no claim to being comprehensive or fully accurate. Although considerable effort has been made to assure the reliability of the information they contain, their accuracy is limited to the information contained in the sources listed in the note. It is anticipated that new APBNs will be issued on a continuing but irregular basis, as the author's time allows. The contents of these notes may be freely quoted and cited provided both the author and source are given.
