The 1973 Oil Shock was a profound crisis, which led to several economic and political implications in the industrial countries. However, it appears as if the whole image of the Middle East in the Western industrial states had been reshaped due to the awareness of the Arab Oil Weapon. But how precisely did the image of the Middle East change? And what was actually recognised as ‘Middle East’? These questions are at the heart of my research funded by the Elsa Neumann Scholarship of the City of Berlin.
