There is an air of unreality about this book. It lays out many possibilities of economic cooperation and development involving Israel and Arab states (including a Marshall Plan equivalent) that, given present political conditions, cannot be brought into being.

The volume does contain useful data and analyses on a wide range of economic problems, however, mainly but not only by Israeli authors.
