Arguing that the military and energy aspects of nuclear programs are becoming increasingly difficult to decouple, this volume explores the key domestic drivers of nuclear behavior and decision making in the region; the deployment of nuclear energy by Gulf Cooperation Council nations to further guarantee and expedite their hyper-economic growth; and the emergence of ideal models of development that other states may emulate---and what the consequences of such progress may have on other civilian nuclear aspirants.
