The Politics of Middle Eastern Oil

By J.E. Peterson
Middle East Institute, 1983
529 pp. $30.00

For purposes of reference or teaching, or for getting a rounded view of a big set of problems, this collection of readings has much to recommend it. One can take exception to the balance of the coverage-Soviet policy gets but one short article, as does the relevance of the Arab-Israeli question to oil politics-or to the selection of authors, but there are enough of the latter (35) to cover a wide spectrum of views.
