Great Power Interests In The Persian Gulf

Great Power Interests In The Persian Gulf

By Paul Jabber, Gary G. Sick, Hisahiko Okazaki and Dominique Mo

Council on Foreign Relations, 1989, 78 pp.

Succinct presentation of the views and policies of the United States, Western Europe and Japan toward the region of the Persian Gulf, with particular attention to strategic interest, oil and the Iran-Iraq War. The chapters by the European and Japanese authors are notable for points often ignored elsewhere and for highlighting where European and Japanese interests diverge from those of the United States.
