"Writing for students and interested lay people, Casey has penned an accessible analytical history of the Middle Eastern country of Kuwait. The material is structured similarly to other volumes in the Greenwood Histories of Modern Nations series, offering a timeline of historical events, a broadly chronological narrative that describes Kuwait's origins as a desert sheikhdom in the 19th century and its evolution through the present time, biographical information on notable people, a glossary, and a bibliographic essay."

"The History of Kuwait includes information about the land and people, and the history of this area from ca. 3000 BCE, through independence, nationhood, invasion by Iraq in 1990, occupation, and liberation up to present day Kuwait."
"[T]his comprehensive history of Kuwait spans from 3000 BCE, when the first settlers traveled through the northwestern coast of the Persian Gulf, to 2006 CE, when Kuwaiti women first voted in municipal elections. The book contains a thorough depiction of the country's geography and demography, tracing its evolution as a nation through its verious forms under different rulers and occupying countries. It also carefully addresses the current conditions, both social and political, of this small but wealthy country in the modern era, and includes a list of notable Kuwaitis."
