The period since the Second World War saw a spectacular transformation of the Kuwaiti economy, making it one of the world’s major oil states with one of the highest per capita incomes. This rapid transformation, however, has brought with it attendant problems. This book, first published in 1981, examines the critical issue of the Kuwaiti labour force: some three-quarters of it is expatriate labour, and the Kuwaiti portion suffers from a high illiteracy rate. Dr Alessa isolates the various factors responsible for Kuwait’s manpower problems, and puts forward a number of original solutions.
