Barnett, Thomas P. M.

World Politics Review (19446284);5/12/2011, p73
The article looks at the responsibility of the U.S. in the integration of the Middle East with globalization. The author argues that the only solution to instabilities arising from the process is the acceptance of greater interdependencies by the world's great powers. He points out the role of the Middle East in the economic condition of the U.S. He describes the lack of immunity of any region to the interlocking relationships of globalization as the outcome of pursuing comparative trade advantages.
