Abstract: This research shows the limitations of institutionalist assumptions concerning the prospects for the success of international regimes. After showing the theoretical shortcomings of institutionalist and neo-liberal deductions, I propose a "state-power" model for better understanding regime dynamics. I test my propositions with an extensive case study that traces the Western oil regime from its creation under the global hegemony of the United States through its demise after the United States lost relative power in the petroleum issue area. I also show that attempts by the West to re-create a viable oil regime to counter OPEC power have been unsuccessful.
