Business and the Middle East: Threats and Prospects studies the political security condition in the Middle East and its implications for business in the 1980s. This book is divided in nine chapters, wherein the first chapter discusses the religious environment in the Middle East. This topic is followed by an overview of political and security assessment and by a discussion on the strategic, economic, and political assessment of businesses in Egypt. The economies and negotiations with the US of the Middle East are then examined. The last two chapters explain the multinationals and Arab economic development and the assessment of corporate vulnerability. This text will be invaluable to experts and students in the field of economics, business administration, and management, as well as to historians and other academicians interested in the economy of the Middle East.
