There are two interesting essays in this conference collection. Gary Sick provides a historical overview of U.S. policy in the Persian Gulf during the past 35 years and finds an absence of feasible or well-defined objectives. Bhabani Sen Gupta, an Indian analyst, stresses the growing interdependence of South and Southwest Asia. He argues that if India were to improve its relationship with Pakistan, normalize relations with the U.S., and maintain a certain distance from the Soviet Union, it could gain the needed access to Arab petrodollars.
