The primary purpose of this work is to define what has so commonly been referred to as a "special relationship" between the United States and Saudi Arabia. In accomplishing that task there evolved therefrom two paramount theses The first is that there is, indeed, a special relation' ship between the United States and Saudi Arabia and the second is that the relationship underwent a significant change in 1973, Founded shortly after the birth of the nation-state kingdom within a context of private economic venture, it was a decade later before the relationship was expanded to include bilateral government relations. The year 1973 marked a watershed in the relationship for it was events of that year which prompted a redistribution of share-interests and a metamorphosis of the relationship into something of greater complexity and intertwining of interests . The method of approach is via chronological history. The first half of this work traces the birth and evolution of the relationship while the latter half focuses upon current vested national interests and possibilities of the future.
