Economic Relations between Egypt and the Gulf Oil States, 1967-2000

Economic Relations between Egypt and the Gulf Oil States, 1967-2000

Dr. Gil Feiler, Sussex Academic Press, November 2003


The author provides a unique insight into a virtually unseen current that has shaped Middle East war and politics for over 30 years by explaining the intricate and ever shifting relationship between Egypt and the immensely wealthy Arab Gulf newcomers.

The book analyses the effects economic aid and cooperation had on the political relationship between the two sides, and on President Sadat's peace initiative with Israel. It provides a wealth of new data and original and insightful analysis, and fills an important gap in our understanding of the inner economic workings of the modern Arab world.


"Feiler examines in great detail economic relations between Egypt and the Arab oil exporting countries... A concluding chapter nicely assesses why the economic ties had less impact than suggested by the rhetoric on both sides... Recommended." - Social & Behavioral Sciences.
