Hey guys!

I was wondering if anyone could recommend me some good Historians which believe the gulf war was about oil, defending Western assets or preserving the status quo.

The obvious example would be Saddam Hussein deciding to Trade oil with Euros instead of the Dollar (thereby undermining the status of the petro-dollar). In the War on Terror (don't know as much about the Gulf Wars).

Historians studying the Gulf Wars from this perspective or earlier is what I want though as my course runs till 2001! Could be earlier wars, but NOT colonial powers - or at least not with the intention of establishing a colony, purely economic - could be about how the US profited from WWII I guess. This perspective would be EXTREMELY useful


Thank youuuuuuuuu
