Oil and Labor in the Middle East: Saudi Arabia and the Oil Boom

Synopsis

Based on the author's first-hand research and experience in Saudi Arabia, this monograph presents a highly readable account of the internationalization of the Middle East's labor force during and after the oil boom of 1973-83. Written from the perspective of an active participant rather than that of an academic observer, Oil and Labor in the Middle East analyzes the expatriate workers' world and the multinational companies employing them. It will prove particularly valuable to those involved in the exchange of labor across national borders.
