Crude Strategy, edited by Charles L. Glaser and Rosemary A. Kelanic, explores whether the United States should continue to rely on its military to protect the flow of oil from the Persian Gulf; and, if its security commitment is strategically sound, whether the United States should revise its military posture.  Contributors delve into a range of vital economic and security issues: the economic costs of an oil supply disruption, whether or not an American withdrawal increases the probability of a disruption, the internal stability of Saudi Arabia, the budgetary costs of the U.S. military commitment to the Gulf, and the possibility of blunting the effects of disruptions with non-military investments.
