"The author’s solid interdisciplinary bibliography strongly complements his fieldwork. Geographers will benefit from this book, which is also directed toward anthropologists and economists. Highly recommended."—Choice

"Innovative, original, and convincing. . . . The argument picks up on a number of literatures and effectively ties them together to make a unique contribution to geography, Middle Eastern studies, and the literature on cultural economies."—Mitch Rose, department of geography, Aberystwyth University

"At the heart of the book is an intimate study of the Persian Gulf, and a passionate demand that research and theory on the global cultural-political economy take very seriously the complex and seemingly inconsistent, but central role of ‘other’ places, particularly the Middle East. . . . the book is a work that has been waiting to be written and fills now what seems like an obvious gap in the geographic literature and in Middle East studies."—Amy Mills, Department of Geography, University of South Carolina and author of Streets of Memory
