520    "This work reconstructs and explains the arms relationship
       that successive U.S. administrations developed with the 
       Shah of Iran from 1950. This relationship has generally 
       been neglected in the extant literature leading to a 
       series of omissions and distortions in the historical 
       record. By detailing how and why Iran transitioned from a 
       primitive military aid recipient in the 1950s to America's
       primary military credit customer in the late 1960s and 
       1970s, this book provides a detailed and original 
       contribution to the understanding of a key Cold War 
       episode in U.S. foreign policy. By drawing on extensive 
       declassified documents from more than 10 archives, the 
       investigation demonstrates not only the importance of the 
       arms relationship but also how it reflected, and 
       contributed to, the wider evolution of U.S.-Iranian 
       relations from a position of Iranian client state 
       dependency to a situation where the U.S. became heavily 
       leveraged to the Shah for protection of the Gulf and 
       beyond -- until the policy met its disastrous end. This 
       work only study that deals directly and comprehensively 
       with the entirety of US-Iran arms relations during the 
       reign of the Shah. The research posits that a failure to 
       analyse arms issues in any detail has hindered any true 
       understanding of U.S.-Iran relations prior to 1979, and 
       has therefore omitted a key factor in the Cold War 
       geopolitics of the Middle East. Adding this layer of 
       analysis is not just historical, it provides insight into 
       the major U.S. Cold War policy shifts that followed the 
       Iranian Revolution - such as the Carter Doctrine and 
       Reagan's decision to go on the offensive against the 
       Soviet Union. Put simply, those policies bore a direct 
       relation to the failure of outsourcing containment in the 
       Middle East via arms sales and security relationships with
       allies such as the Shah. In that sense, arming Iran was 
       the grand test of the Nixon doctrine. And, it became its 
       grand failure. When Iran descended into revolution in late
       1978 and its people violently deposed the Shah's regime, 
       the very essence of U.S. policy towards the entire Gulf 
       region imploded. In that sense, although this monograph 
       proceeds outwardly as a piece of diplomatic history, it is
       also written for those seeking better foundations for 
       which to gain an understanding of U.S. foreign policy in 
       the final decade of the Cold War, and beyond. This work 
       will be of interest to students and scholars of Middle 
       East studies, US Foreign Policy and Security studies. "--
