Originally published in 1984 this book focuses principally on the use of foreign aid by the members of OPEC in the 1970s and demonstrates how the divisive elements both within OPEC and between OPEC and the rest of the developing world prevented OPEC from using aid to advance developing world objectives. It explains why the OPEC countries filed to achieve the goals they set for themselves and will be of interest to all those concerned with the politics of the developing world, development assistance, Middle East regional economics and political and security issues.
