Miller shows how the American stake in Saudi Arabian oil challenged
the United States to create closer ties with the Saudi kingdom,
compelling the move from isolation to involvement with the Middle
East. He describes the growing awareness of the stratehic
importance of Saudi Arabia, U.S. shrinking oil reserves and the
focusing of America on gaining access to the king's oil, and the
continued efforts of U.S. officials after World War II to develop
Arabian oil even in the emerging cold war.
