Saudi Arabia in the 1980's: Foreign Policy, Security, and Oil
By William B. Quandt
Brookings, 1981, 190 pp.

William Quandt, with a background of scholarship and government service, is more at home in the field of international relations than in speculation on what is happening behind the latticed windows of the royal house of Al Saud. In straightforward fashion and with an economy of words, he presents the key questions of U.S.-Saudi relations-security, oil, money, Middle East politics-and offers some sound advice.
