Bridging the Gap Between Rich and Poor
American Economic Development Policy Toward the Arab East, 1942-1949Book - 1987
A very welcome addition to the largely scarce literature on the history of Middle Eastern-US relations in the area of economic development. Choice
Although the United States' economic relations with the Third World have gone through various phases as political and fiscal conditions have shifted, Dr. Godfried contends that the main policy outlines established in the Middle East in the 1940s have dominated the American approach to Third World development ever since. His careful analysis of the issue traces the U.S. role in the North-South conflict over economic development and shows how U.S. development policy evolved during and after World War II, with particular reference to the Arab Middle East.
