In external affairs, Sabah al-Salims attitude towards the Palestinian issue and his contribution to the stabilisation of relations with Iraq are extensively documented. He masterminded the secret negotiations in 1962-3 which resulted in Iraqs acceptance of the independence and borders of Kuwait. The full story of these is told here for the first time in English, as is his handling of the subsequent 1973 crisis in Kuwait-Iraq relations, the al-Samta incident. Britains withdrawal from the Gulf in 1968-71 necessitated a fundamental rethink of Kuwaits foreign policy, and Sabah al-Salims leading role in Kuwaits realignment towards the USA is documented in full. This biography will be the definitive reference work on Sabah al-Salims life and reign for many years to come.
