The Foreign Relations of the United States series presents the official documentary historical record of major foreign policy decisions and significant diplomatic activity of the United States Government.

Part of a subseries of the State Department's Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series that documents the most important issues in the foreign policy of the administrations of Richard M. Nixon and Gerald R. Ford, this volume documents U.S. policy towards Iran and Iraq from 1973 to 1976.

The volume's six chapters are divided into two chronological sections. The first section documents the increasingly close political, economic, and strategic relationship, which developed between the U.S. and Iran during the mid-1970s.

The second section covers Washington's somewhat more distant interactions with Iraq, with whom the United States did not maintain formal diplomatic relations following the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

Historians, researchers, and students in high school and above, including debate teams, may want to use this resource for the chronological timeframes for U.S. involvement with Iran druing the mid-1970s.   High school, public, community college, and academic/university libraries will want to include this primary source reference work in their Middle East reference collections.
