About this book


Comprising both extremely rich and very poor countries the Arab region is of unique variety. This book explores the relations between rich and poor Arab countries, presenting papers on Arab integration efforts, the impact of oil prices on the South and least developed Arab countries in particular, the co-operation of poor Arabs with the EEC, basic needs, agricultural policies, intra-Arab migration, differences in ideologies and health systems, Islamic banking, and the unsuitability of IMF policies for poor Arab countries.
