Planning the Future of Saudi Arabia: A Model for Achieving National Priorities

Planning the Future of Saudi Arabia: A Model for Achieving National Priorities

By Robert D. Crane

Praeger, 1978, 241 pp.

An American investment banker and management expert with experience in the Middle East describes the second Saudi Five-Year Plan and its problems of management in the light of Saudi goals. His analysis of those goals, originally done under the aegis of the U.S.-Saudi Commission, forms the bulk of the book. A rather disjointed work, but interesting in being not just an application of Western thinking to the Saudi economy and society.
