Book Description

Based on interviews with sources ranging from dissidents to diplomats, the book takes the reader behind the wall of piety and medievalism that guards Saudi sensitivities. Discussing the ruling family's self-awarded birthright to wealth and power, Anders Jerichow questions whether it is possible to ignore the rules of the world and still enjoy the protection of the international community?
