520    Science, Development, and Sovereignty in the Arab World 
       examines recent and current performance of Arab countries 
       and their organizations in scientific research in relation
       to their socio-economic development. It shows that the 
       Arab countries have altered their research and development
       performance in recent years. They are, however, severely 
       handicapped by a political economy dominated by 
       technological dependence, corruption, and limited inter-
       Arab collaboration on scientific research. The book 
       highlights factors that have affected the individual Arab 
       countries' development of R&D and uses standard 
       international indicators to evaluate research output, 
       human capital, economic performance, standing in 
       agriculture and health. It compares data and outcomes 
       between countries and within the region and evaluates the 
       effects of international cooperation in scientific 
       research and the prevailing political economy
