This study analyzes the effects of globalization on the Middle East region, specifically examining inter-Arab relations and affairs and the international, regional, and institutional criteria for Middle East regional integration. By cross-examining similar schemes of regionalism in Latin America and Southeast Asia, certain political, economic, and institutional criteria are established for the process of such integration. This study should appeal to scholars of political science, economics, sociology, and Middle Eastern studies.
