Historical, economic and institutional factors are examined to show that the Arab states, since their independence, have managed, despite continuous efforts, to accomplish only a modest industrial development. The general tendency of the relevant literature in Arabic is committed to mechanistic approaches and unclear concepts. It seems that, without some degree of regional integration, no real industrial improvement is likely. The paper argues that even this integration will not do. The failure of the Arab world over the last several decades to mobilize its human resources, identifies the chief obstacle to sustained industrial improvements in the Arab world.
