The Middle East

Bromley, Simon (2004). The Middle East. In: Payne, Anthony ed. The New regional politics of development. London, UK: Palgrave Macmillan, pp. 193–217.



This text presents a broad-ranging assessment of the various development strategies being pursued in the various major regions of the world. Its aim is to map new patterns of development and inequality, moving beyond outdated distinctions between "developing" and "developed" areas. To this end it draws on approaches from international political economy to treat development as a strategy of orientation towards the global political economy which states of all types must now pursue.
