Araim examines the role of intergovernmental commodity organizations in international commodity trade, focusing particularly on the effects of these organizations on the establishment of the New International Economic Order. Four major commodity organizations are studied in depth--OPEC, the Intergovernment Council of Copper-Exporting Countries, the International Bauxite Association, and the International Coffee Organization--to determine their ability to wrest control from transnational corporations, to repatriate the profits from the development of a raw material base, and enforce an altered economic order that gives greater prominence to the world's developing nations.
