In recent years Arab countries have increased their research and development performance, but they have been severely handicapped by limited inter-Arab collaboration in scientific research and by political economies dominated by technological dependence and corruption. Science, Development, and Sovereignty in the Arab World examines the recent scientific research performance of Arab countries and their organizations in relation to their socio-economic development. A. B. Zahlan highlights factors that have affected Arab countries' advancement in research and development. Using standard international indicators to evaluate research output, human capital, economic performance, and agriculture and health standing, he determines the effects of international cooperation and the prevailing political economy on scientific development.

About the Author:

A.B. Zahlan was a professor of Physics at the American University of Beirut (1956–1976). Since then he has been involved in consulting in science policy, designing and establishing organizations serving development in the Arab region. Most recently, he has served as a consultant to the Office of the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq.

Review:

"Zahlan notes the growing science and technology capacities in the Arab region but regrets the almost universal lack of political capacity to take advantage of this rich potential. This book should be required reading for awakened publics determined to shake off not only political but also technological dependence." - Clement M. Henry, chair, Political Science Department, American University in Cairo
