Group conflict and political mobilization in Bahrain and the Gulf

By: Justin Gengler | 

In this book, Justin Gengler uses the first political survey of its kind in Bahrain to show that the state is not ready to offer the rentier bargain to all citizens, nor are all citizens ready to accept it. Instead, shared social and religious identities provide a valid basis for inclusive political coordination. Challenging the dominant “rentier” interpretation of political life in the Gulf states, Gingler provides practical evidence and a new theoretical framework for understanding the attitudes of ordinary citizens.
