Overview

Using the 1947 Marshall Plan as a guide for reconstruction and rehabilitation of western Europe following World War II, this volume anticipates the need for U.S. financial aid of billions of dollars to serve as the glue for stability and peace throughout the region of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, including Pakistan and Afghanistan. As with the Marshall Plan, demands for regional economic integration are described with a model for a potential economic community of 28 nations, composed of one billion people.

Editorial Reviews

Digest Of Middle East Studies
[Nation-Building provide[s] insights into the interplay of underlying variables, encompassing significant regional, global, religious, secular, socio-political, and historical factors, of the permeability of the Middle East.
— el-Sayed el-Aswad, Ph.D., The University of Bahrain
Bill Clinton
Praise for Jerry Rosenberg's previous Middle Eastern policy title :

As you point out, there is an opportunity to define the future of the Middle East in terms of reconciliation and coexistence rather than confrontation and violence. There are no limits to what can be done if the region's energy and talents can be channeled into creating new opportunities and building a land as bountiful and peaceful as it is holy.

Natan Sharansky
I hope, by drawing on the Marshall Plan, you are able to formulate a blueprint that can succeed in the Middle East. I further hope that you are able to use the Marshall Plan to illustrate to others how such plans have been successful in the past, and how, despite the daunting odds, such a plan could create economic growth, democracy, and peace in our region. I wish you much success in your important work.
Shimon Peres
To Jerry M. Rosenberg—With much respect for his attempt to organize a great dream. I believe you have addressed yourself to the very foundations which will lie at the heart of the future of the region and I hope indeed that the day is not far off when the plan will be brought to realization.
