A collection of papers presented at a conference honoring Charles Issawi, whose formal lecture reflecting his usual wisdom and urbanity, an historical comparison of the economy of the Middle East with those of other regions, constitutes the opening chapter. The other essays by well-qualified experts are self-contained studies on specific topics such as economic development, capital investment, migration, cultural loyalties, social change and education.
