This publication provides facsimile copies of the key documents relating to the development of the State of Kuwait from 1966-1971. It is important both as an extension to an existing Archive Editions collection on Kuwait which begins in 1899 and ends in 1965, and in its own right as these years contain policy decisions which identify Kuwait as a pioneer in the redistribution of wealth. Kuwait pursued redistribution internally through public works and benefits but also internationally through the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development, one of its great beneficiaries in the late 1960s being Iraq. This pro-Arab stance led it into direct support for the Palestinian cause and financial support for the countries directly engaged in the 1967 war against Israel.
