About the Book:
In this celebratory volume, a group of eminent scholars pays tribute to Professor Issawi's distinguished career with a number of studies that examine key issues in the economic history of the Middle East. Essays cover such subjects as: British and American efforts to organize the Middle East; aspects of the Middle East oil industry; the Middle East in World Trade; economic justice in contemporary Islamic thought; property rights in the Islamic Republic or Iran; the growth of public sector enterprise in the Middle East; and international commerce in the eleventh century.
The breadth of the material that is presented here stands as a good testimony for the wide-ranging impact Charles Issawi has had on the study of the Middle East. . . . This book also represents something close to the state of the art in the economic history of the Middle East.
