Oil in US-Arab Relations in the 20th Century
The thesis will be about the relation between Arab countries and the United States, and the role of oil in creating a strong relationship between them. The U.S.-Arab relationship is one of America's most important, and it establishes very complicated bilateral connections in the Middle East. The guiding questions refer to oil policies and to how these relationships were established. Additional reference will be made to the role of European countries within this relationship, the impact of the oil strikes and the gulf wars.
