About this book


Middle East oil and Anglo-American special relations were among the most contentious issues during the Cold War. Oil is crucial to our understanding of Britain's and the USA's Cold War policies in the Middle East. This book presents an in-depth study of the issues of the period and the legacy of oil in the post Cold war era.
