520    Over the last two decades, at a cost of about $60 billion,
       the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has constructed the largest 
       public works projects in history - the new industrial 
       cities of Jubail, on the Gulf, and Yanbu, on the Red Sea, 
       the home of a huge and sophisticated petrochemical 
       industry that claims almost ten percent of the world 
       market. This important work examines the evolution of the 
       Saudis' capacity to plan such large projects; their 
       creation of the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu, an 
       independent super-agency with the power to cut through red
       tape and make multi-billion dollar moves on its own; their
       partnership with Bechtel Corporation and the Ralph M. 
       Parsons Co. in the design and construction of the modern 
       Saudi cities; the roles of entities such as Aramco and the
       SABIC; and the effects of the Gulf War.
