520    Over 5 decades of economic and technical assistance to the
       countries of Africa and the Middle East have failed to 
       improve the life prospects for over 1.4 billion people who
       remain vulnerable. Billions of dollars have been spent on 
       such assistance and yet little progress has been made. 
       Persistent hunger and hopelessness threaten more than 
       individuals and families. These conditions foster 
       political alienation that can easily metastasize into 
       hostility and aggression. Recent uprisings in the Middle 
       East are emblematic of this problem. Vulnerable people 
       give rise to vulnerable states. This book challenges the 
       dominant catechism of development assistance by arguing 
       that the focus on economic growth (and fighting poverty) 
       has failed to bring about the promised "convergence." Poor
       people and poor countries have clearly not closed the gap 
       on the rich industrialized world. Pursuing convergence has
       been a failure. Here we argue that development assistance 
       must be reconstituted to focus on creating economic 
       coherence. People are vulnerable because the economies in 
       which they are embedded do not cohere. The absence of 
       economic coherence means that economic processes do not 
       work as they must if individual initiative is to result in
       improved livelihoods. Weak and vulnerable states must be 
       strengthened so that they can become partners in the 
       process of creating economic coherence. When economies do 
       not cohere, countries become breeding grounds for 
       localized civil conflicts that often spill across national
