From the cover: “This book examines a unique institution in the Arab countries whose command of oil resources is making them increasingly wealthy and important. It is concerned with the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development, set up in 1961 to find ways of using Kuwait’s new oil wealth to promote economic development in the Arab world as a whole. Run by Arabs as an autonomous organisation, and remaining determinedly neutral in the face of political and ideological pressures, the Fund has proved remarkable for its influence and achievements. The author describes these against the general background of social and economic problems in the different countries of the Arab world.”
