What: “Thicker than Oil: America’s Uneasy Partnership with Saudi Arabia”

Who: Rachel Bronson, Senior Fellow and Director, Middle East and Gulf Studies, Council on Foreign Relations

Event: For fifty-five years, the United States and Saudi Arabia were solid partners, and Rachel Bronson argues that this relationship was never simply about "oil for security." Saudi Arabia's geographic location and religiously motivated foreign policy figured prominently in America’s Cold War efforts to defeat communism, but decisions made during that period left behind a legacy that today enflames the Middle East. In Thicker than Oil, Rachel Bronson reveals how the countries' shared interests helped sow the seeds of today's Islamic radicalism.
