Egypt continues to be cultural and political beacon in the Middle East. Its control of the Suez

Canal, cold peace with Israel, concern about Gaza, mediation and interest in the Israel-Palestine

conflict, and the marginalization of the Muslim Brotherhood are all points of significance. There

is a close, and expanding, defence and security relationship between Egypt and the GCC states,

most evident in the inclusion of Egypt in Saudi Arabia's new Sunni counter-terrorism alliance.

The authors of this book contextualise historical linkages, and allies add to this the real

postures (especially contentious relations with Qatar and Turkey) and study Egypt’s strategic

relations with Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the UAE in particular.

The book’s main argument derives from a complex web of political, socio-economic and

military issues in a changing regional and international system. It states that the Egyptian

regional policy under Sisi will generally remain consistent with existing parameters (such as

broad counter-terrorism efforts, including against the Muslim brotherhood). There is strong

evidence to support the idea that Cairo wishes to maintain a GCC-first policy.
