Register now for free access to GSN and Saudi Arabia Newsletter issues for the 1979-2003 period.

Stretching back to an era where high-level analysis for businesses and embassies operating in the region were only published in paper form, these searchable pdfs provide a wealth of analysis that is not available elsewhere.

1979, the earliest available online volume, focuses exclusively on 14 issues of the Saudi Arabia Newsletter, while in 1980 the archive includes the final 11 issues of Middle East Newsletter (the early name of Gulf States Newsletter) which routinely carried articles on countries in North Africa and the fringes of the Middle East region, including Turkey and Sudan.

From 1980 to 1987, each volume includes issues of both Gulf States Newsletter and the Saudi Arabia Newsletter, after which, they were merged into an enlarged Gulf States Newsletter.
