Long a recipient of migrants from its surrounding areas, the Arabian Peninsula today comprises a mosaic of communities of diverse ethnic, cultural, linguistic and religious origins. For decades, while the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states have housed and employed groups of migrants coming and going from Asia, Africa and the West, they have also served as home to the older, more settled communities that have come from neighbouring Arab states. Arab Migrant Communities in the GCC is a unique, original work of scholarship based on in-depth fieldwork shedding light on a topic both highly relevant and woefully understudied. It focuses on the earlier community of Arab immigrants within the GCC, who are among the politically most significant and sensitive of migrant groups in the region. Through its multi-disciplinary lenses of social history, cultural studies, economics, and political science, the book presents original data and provides analyses of the settlement and continued evolution of migrant Arab communities across the GCC, their work in and assimilation within host societies and labour markets, and their political, economic, social and cultural significance both to the GCC region and to their countries of origin.

Elaborating on the photographs taken for the popular Dieux du Stade calendar, these tantalizing images feature players of the famous international rugby club, the Stade Français Paris and athletes from other disciplines such as football, handball, judo, and swimming, in all their unclothed glory. This second volume of the successful Dieux du Stade book presents photographs by Fred Goudon, whose work has focused on the male form for over 20 years. His stunning composition and skillful use of light create an intimate atmosphere and transform the athletes into Greek gods.
