Professor Tétreault has neatly disentangled OAPEC from OPEC and the Arab League to delineate its functions and test its influence, which she suspects may be greatest in regional development and technological transfer. Prices figure largely in the 17 papers collected by Professor El Mallakh, but several of his authors deal with other aspects of the OPEC experience and its possible future.
