Toby Matthiesen offers a first-hand account of the Arab Spring protests in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the Gulf States, and shows how the regimes have encouraged sectarian divisions to undermine protests, effectively creating a Sectarian Gulf. While this has ensured regime survival in the short term, Matthiesen warns of dire consequences this will have—for the social fabric of the Gulf States, for the rise of transnational Islamist networks, and for foreign relations with the West—in the future.

Toby Matthiesen is a research fellow in Islamic and Middle Eastern studies at Pembroke College, University of Cambridge.
