Abstract:

This thesis examines Persian Gulf security from a geostrategic and historical perspective. It emphasizes the current relationship between the United States and Oman and offers the opinion that this is not the best policy for the U.S. Secondly, the thesis proposes two alternative routes for Gulf security by examining the newly formed Gulf Cooperation Council and Western Allied contributions toward Gulf defense. The thesis concludes with a look at the advantages and disadvantages of the various Gulf security policies and proposes a new course for U.S. policy in the region. Author
