Abstract:This dissertation will seek to answer the following questions: Why has the US-Saudi relationship survived for so long in spite of numerous changes in world order? Can the reason for the longevity of this relationship be explained through alliance theory? In sum, is alliance theory a sufficient explanation for why the US-Saudi relationship has lasted so long and managed to survive numerous changes in world order? To answer these questions, I intend to focus on US-Saudi relations from the Cold War to 2005 when Crown Prince Abdullah became King. To better understand the relationship between the US and Saudi Arabia, I intend to focus on three crisis periods in order to see how both countries dealt with each crisis and to see how their relationship was affected. The three crises periods chosen took place just after a change in the global order and/or created new rules for the international environment. I will focus on the Cold War period, the post-Cold War/1990-91 Gulf war period, and the post September 11, 2001 period. In addition to understanding the history of the relationship between the US and Saudi Arabia, I explore a number of theories on alliance formation, and test the applicability of those theories to the US-Saudi alliance. Does any one theory explain the relationship within each period and/or explain the longevity of the alliance and its ability to transcend the different periods? Is any one theory sufficient to explain why this dyad survived for so long and weathered major changes to the international system? I explore different variations of realism, liberalism, and constructivism, in addition to other competing theories and approaches. I conclude that no one theory is sufficient in explaining the US-Saudi alliance. That said, it is the embattled realist theory which offers the closest rational for this dyad.
