Dear Colleagues:


I am pleased to announce the publication of the first edition of "Middle
East Business Environment." This book offers a thorough review of the main
facets of the Middle East business environment. The opening chapter
discusses factors that affect the business environment in the Middle East.
Subsequent chapters explore the main elements of Middle Eastern culture
including religion, values, and attitudes, and consider how these affect
business practices. They investigate how Middle Eastern countries are faring
in their economic development efforts. They examine global trade regimes,
the emerging field of global e-commerce, and challenges that may impede
regional integration. They learn about Islamic finance and how it functions,
and they look at marketing challenges facing Middle Eastern nations. Edited
by a team of business scholars with extensive experiences in various parts
of the Middle East, this book incorporates contributions from distinguished
scholars from several disciplines. This book is an invaluable resource for
students, practitioners, scholars, and businesses  working to understand the
Middle East beyond politics. You can view the posting on Cognella's website
