Inside the Kingdom

Kings, Clerics, Modernists, Terrorists, and the Struggle for Saudi Arabia

Robert Lacey

Discover the paradoxical country of Saudi Arabia with this insightful and penetrating look into its modern state defined by vast oil deposits and powerful religious establishments. After living among its princes and paupers, journalist Robert Lacey reveals the Saudi's attempt to reconcile life under religious law with a rapidly changing world, tracing its history from the 1970s oil boom to the events of 9/11 and the oil market convulsions of today. This rich work provides a must-read modern history of a country with powerful reverberations around the globe.
