dc.description.abstractPresidents Carter and Reagan each established a new United States policy to govern sales or transfers of conventional arms to foreign nations. President Carter called for stricter controls and an overall reduction in arms transfers to foreign nations. President Reagan believed that arms transfers to friends and allies strengthened the United States position in the world. This thesis analyzes the success of both arms transfer policies in the Persian Gulf by comparing the dollar amount and type of equipment actually transferred against the formal Congressional Notifications (Arms Export Control Act section 36b). Further, it examines proposed arms sales and transfer with respect to strategic access of the Persian Gulf. Finally, it examines employment and financial impacts of the Foreign Military Sales program on the United States economy.en_US
