Description from the publisher: Saudi Arabia plays a crucial role in our interdependent 21st-century world. It is a country of fabulous wealth – the world’s largest oil producer – whose princes and businessmen raise futuristic cities in the desert. Yet it is also notorious for producing fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 suicide bombers and fostering fundamentalist clerics who want to turn the clock back to the time of the Prophet>

Bestselling author Robert Lacey has known the kingdom well for thirty years. Here, he depicts the nation, post 9/11, struggling to re-align itself around the concepts it once scorned: religious tolerance, human rights, political accountability – though not yet democracy – and, most challenging of all, equal rights for women. If the kingdom can succeed in this battle, the consequences will be profound – for its own society and for the troubled Middle East.
