Description

In the first years of the Soviet regime there was little, if any, Soviet interest in Arabia and the Persian Gulf.

Over the last fifty years relations between Russia and this part of the world have become more complex; this book traces their intricate history in a full analysis of Soviet policy towards the Arabian Peninsula.

It opens with a review of events from the beginning of the Soviet regime until 1975.

The author goes on to consider the period between 1975 and 1978, concentrating especially on Soviet relations with Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and South Yemen.

The impact of the rise of the Ayatollah Khomeini's Islamic Republic in 1979 is examined in detail, with the emphasis on the situation in Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and both North and South Yemen.

Finally the author examines the effect on Soviet policy of the Iran-Iraq war and the subsequent insecurity in the Gulf region.

This study is based on mainly primary sources of Soviet, Arab, Iranian and Western origins.
