Abstract : The purpose of the paper is to examine the role of Iran in the Persian Gulf since the withdrawal of British military forces and analyze this role in light of United States' and Allied interest in maintaining the stability of the area and an uninterrupted supply of oil. The paper is divided into four research areas to narrow the scope of presentation: Chapter I is a brief historical summary of the major events of Iran's past that may influence her future actions; Chapter II is a study of Iran's internal and external economic interests; Chapter III focuses on the stability of Iran's government and its external political interests and foreign policy; and Chapter IV is concerned with Iran's military capabilities and discusses possible security arrangements within the Gulf.
