Like New in Like New jacket. Cities from the Arabian Desert: the Building of Jubail and Yanbu in Saudi Arabia-A case study of what is arguably the largest civil construction project undertaken in modern times: the building of two industrial cities, Jubail and Yanbu, on the edge of the Arabian desert. Based upon thousands of pages of Saudi documents, interviews with Saudi officials and their American business partners at Bechtel and Ralph M. Parsons, and the author's first-hand knowledge of the projects, the work paints a picture of modern urban planning on a grand scale and documents two of the largest developmental projects in the world. This study will be of interest to students and scholars of urban planning and development, civil engineering, and Middle East studies.
