With over thirty years of experience writing about Saudi Arabia, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and former publisher of "The" "Wall Street Journal "Karen Elliott House has an unprecedented knowledge of life inside this shrouded kingdom. Through anecdotes, observation, analysis, and extensive interviews, she navigates the maze in which Saudi citizens find themselves trapped and reveals the sometimes contradictory nature of the nation that is simultaneously a final bulwark against revolution in the Middle East and a wellspring of Islamic terrorists.
Saudi Arabia finds itself threatened by fissures and forces on all sides, and "On Saudi Arabia" explores in depth what this portends for the country's future--and our own.
