The Dwight D. Eisenhower administration's Cold War concerns shaped the United States' policy in the Middle East during the 1950s. Relations with Saudi Arabia proved critical as the U.S. pursued its interests in the region. At first, the administration did not recognize the importance of Saudi Arabia and later it overevaluated the kingdom's significance. Saudi Arabia proved decisive in the politics of the region throughout Eisenhower's time in office. This study examines the U.S.-Saudi relationships, the environment in which it developed, and results that were derived from it. Primary sources, published and unpublished, as well as secondary sources in the form of monographs and periodicals were utilized in the research of this study.
