For the most part this is old wine in old bottles, but it is a competent general introduction to the role of outside states in the Middle East and Persian Gulf area. In addition to the United States and the U.S.S.R., the "powers" whose policies are covered are Britain, France, the EEC as a community (a particularly good chapter), and three Asian states all given brief treatment-China, Japan and South Korea. The authors, under the leadership of the indefatigable Professor Reich, are all associated with George Washington University.
