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.

In a turbulent, unstable era of severe financial pressures, the development of strategic human resource (HR) practices has become an urgent mandate in higher education. With significant and widespread institutional shifts resulting from globalization, heightened competition, and rapid innovation, educational leaders must optimize their most significant resource—human capital—and align HR strategies, structures, and processes with organizational goals. Due to substantial cuts in state appropriations and rapidly diminishing budgets, public institutions of higher education in particular are struggling to realign resources and programs to fulfill their educational missions and maintain academic quality, while simultaneously responding to complex external legislative and accreditation mandates. In light of these challenges, Creating a Tipping Point: Strategic Human Resources in Higher Education breaks new ground by presenting a research-based approach that supports the evolution of HR practices from siloed, transactional models to strategic operations that serve the entire university. This monograph provides a concrete, progressive road map to developing organizational capabilities in support of the university's academic mission and illustrates this pathway with examples drawn from public research universities. It offers strategies, tools, metrics, and action steps that support the development of an effective and efficient strategic HR operation in higher education. For institutions seeking to implement strategic HR, this book is a practical and invaluable resource.
