Books by GU-Q Faculty and Staff

Since 2005, our faculty and staff have published an impressive number of books. The first 100 books were documented in a celebratory publication in 2019 [link], but we continue to add to this count.
These books demonstrate how we have helped Qatar develop a knowledge-based economy and offer a snapshot of cutting-edge research that covers topics of regional and global concern, such as intelligence and national security, how to overcome poverty, Islam and the West, and the representation of women. This research has been published by a number of prestigious publishers, such as Hurst, Routledge, and Sage and the university presses of Cambridge, Oxford, Columbia, and Cornell.
