The first chapter of Juan Cole’s new Book, Engaging the Muslim World is called “The Struggle for Islamic Oil.” In it, he writes about U.S. foreign policy and oil.

He quotes John McCone, who said in the early 1970s that the relationship of the North Atlantic States to Islamic oil reached a momentous turning point when Arab oil exporters boycotted the U.S. and Netherlands in June 1967.
