`Elusive Development is an ambitious, exhiliarating attempt to persuade academics and policy makers alike "that meaningful development, whether under socialism or under progressive nationalism, will remain elusive, unless it is sustained by a number of critical and though preprquisites. … In an era of cascading capitalism, Yusif Sayigh offers a welcome alternative vision for the future.' - International Journal of Middle East Studies Vol 25:2

`This is a welcome addition to the literature on economic development…it makes for very interesting and relevant reading in pursuit of the answer.' - The Economic Journal

`Sayigh's study certainly contains some thought-provoking statements on the dependency paradigm and the possibilities of collective, self-reliance in the Arab World.' - Tijdschrift voor Economische en Sociale Geografie
