Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Greater Middle East in Global Politics: Social Science Perspectives on the Changing Geography of the World Politics contains the table of contents, list of tables and figures, acknowledgments, list of contributors and list of abbreviations. The book brings together studies of the "Greater Middle East" (GME) in the colonial and post-colonial eras. Many Muslim countries of the GME have failed to successfully transform from an agricultural to an urban industrial economy and to overcome the structural heterogeneity that is the legacy of colonialism and imperialism. They maintained the same policy priorities as their former colonizers, focusing on the growth of their limited export sector and only partially modernizing their agriculture and industry.

Keywords: colonialism; Greater Middle East (GME); industrial economy
