This work seeks to challenge the notion of globalisation and trans-nationalism as one way flows of information and culture from the West to the rest of the world. Through historical and contemporary case studies it examines the exchange of culture through (in and from) the Gulf region and the impact both on the region itself and the world at large. Within the collection is a useful article, by Jonathan Birt, on Wahhabism in the United Kingdom and this is an excellent source for understanding the impact of this wealthy branch of Islam on the Muslim diaspora.
