The Middle East in the Coming Decade: From Wellhead to Well-Being

By John Waterbury and Ragaei El Mallakh

McGraw-Hill (for the Council on Foreign Relations/1980s Project), 1978, 217 pp.

Two thoughtful essays look at the Middle East and its future in the context of North-South relations. The political scientist (Waterbury) is generally more skeptical than the economist (El Mallakh) on the possibilities of constructive statemanship and regional cooperation.
