In 1979, after a decade of enormous increases in the price of oil, U.S. influence in the oil-rich Persian Gulf region declined sharply. Early in the year the Iranian revolution replaced the shah, the principal pro-American leader in the region, with rulers hostile to the United States and to its remaining freinds around the Gulf. In December Soviet troops moved into Afgahistan, bringing the Soviets closer to the Gulf and the Indian Ocean. In the United States these events spurre the announcement of the Carter Doctrine and creation of a new military command to handle Gulf. Crises. Yet the United States established no new fighting forces, and U.S. friends around the Gulf proved less willing than the shah of Iran to host U.S. military presence. THus debate has continued about whether and how th United States can secure important interests int eh Gulf region. Signed and inscribe by authoron title page.Signed by Author. Trade Paperback.
