This is the story of American petroleum interests in the Middle East since the 1930s and their relation to our national foreign oil policy. It provides a clear account of the tangled events leading up to the present dominant position of American enterprise in Middle East oil discovery and production. It also presents a significant case study of a foreign investment and its relation to U.S. foreign economic policy.

Originally published in 1949.
