Summary
Saudi Arabia is a country defined by paradox: it sits atop some of the richest oil deposits in the world, and yet the country's roiling disaffection produced sixteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers. It is a modern state, driven by contemporary technology. This book presents the story of the Saudis in their own words
Summary
Tracing a path through the Persian Gulf War and the events of 9/11 to the oil market convulsions of today, this gives readers a modern history of the Saudis in their own words, revealing a people attempting to reconcile life under religious law with the demands of a rapidly changing world
