Two Gulf wars and the on-going Arab-Israeli conflict have highlighted the salience of military factors in the region. This book argues that many of the most serious "security" challenges to Arab states and societies are rooted not in external military threats, but in the imperatives of socio-economic development. Contributors examine the regional security environment, the social and political impact of regional militarization, and underdevelopment as a source of regional insecurity. Bhagat Korany is author and co-author of "The Foreign Policies of Arab States", "Regimes Politiques Arabes" and "How Foreign Policy Decisions are Made in the Third World". Paul Noble has also written "The Foreign Policies of Arab States", "Echoes of the Intifada" and "Canada and the Arab World". Rex Brynen is the author of "Sanctuary and Survival: the PLO in Lebanon" and editor of "Echoes of the Intifada: Regional Repercussions of the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict".
