Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatched from our warehouse in the UK

For fifty-five years, the United States and Saudi Arabia were solid partners. Since 9/11 this partnership has been sorely tested. In Thicker than Oil, Rachel Bronson shows why the partnership became so intimate and the problems that it spawned. This normally secretive relationship comes alive with stories of American diplomats heaped on the floor before the Saudi King--and a bizarre request for the Saudi government to subsidize Polish pork exports, a request the U.S. Ambassador refused to deliver.Drawing on a wide range of archival material, declassified documents, and interviews with leading Saudi and American officials, Bronson chronicles a long history of close contact. Contrary to popular belief, Bronson shows that the relationship was never just about oil for security. Saudi Arabia's religiously motivated foreign policy was deemed an asset when fighting godless communism, as was Saudi Arabia's geographic location. From Africa to Afghanistan, Egypt to Nicaragua the twoworked to beat back Soviet influence. Overlapping strategic interests helped compartmentalized differences around issues such as the Arab-Israeli conflict. But decisions taken for hard headed Cold War purposes left behind a legacy that today enflames the Middle East.In today's fight against terrorism, Saudi Arabia is both part of the problem and part of the solution. Not withstanding real troubles, Bronson outlines the dangers of allowing the relationship to further deteriorate. Saudi Arabia, she notes, faces a violent and zealous opposition. If this opposition gains complete control of the state's huge resources, it will direct its efforts towards destroying the United States, auguring a true clash of civilizations.
