Saudi Arabia Exposed: Inside a Kingdom in Crisis
John R. Bradley
|Dewey Subject Codes:||953||History|
Most of what little we know of Saudi Arabia comes from little snippets we get on TV or in the popular press. Here at last, is a current, well-written story of Saudi Arabia told by a western journalist who actually lived there.
I believe that he is right wneh he said this is a kingdom in crisis. While Osama bin Laden clearly has America in his sights as an enemy, he apparently considers it his devine duty to take over Saudi Arabia. Combine this with a huge number of non-Saudi workers, with internal conflict combine from groups excluded from the power structure and you get a country with gret potential for trouble.
Mr. Bradley presents a view of Saudi Arabia from the inside. It's a story of a few at the top holding down a much larger population. This is a situation seen in many times, in many blaces before. Some of these have lasted for a very long time, but others have fallen apart.
The one point I would have liked to have seen explored in more detail is the nature of the oil situation. I ralize that this is not his area of expertise, but some understanding of the Saudi's oil situation as seen from inside the country would be nice to know.

You may want a copy of this book in the form of a planar cellulose information
retrieval system, i.e. a printed book. They make good gifts, and are more familiar
to most of us than electronic copies. But finding a printed copy of a book is
sometimes difficult. This section is intended to give you some help by making it
easy to use the more common ways of searching.
1 The first column consists of links to the home pages of the biggest suppliers of books by mail: Amazon and Barnes & Noble. These two suppliers have mostly new books, and their new book inventory probably has an overlap of something like 90%, but this does not mean that they both have exactly the same price. Both of them also list used books from outside suppliers, and the used book inventories are usually quite different. ABE Books is a loose grouping of some 17,000 independent bookstores that list their inventory in a common database - most of these are used books that vary from just issued best sellers to rare and antique books.
From all three home pages you can do searches, look at comments, check prices of both new and used copies, look at various formats such as hardback, paperback, eBook formats and much more.
2 The second column has links to Barnes & Noble and Amazon pages describing their new eBook Readers. These have become very popular lately as they allow the purchase of new books and textbooks at prices lower than the printed copies, and in a format that many people find attractive.
3 Clicking on the links in the third column sends you to the supplier along with the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) of the book described on this page if we have been able to find that number. Note that an ISBN refers to a specific edition of a book. Thus a single book might have many ISBNs: Hardback edition, softback, large print, foreign language and so on. Usually the book listing on B & N or Amazon will have links to the other editions that are available.
4 Is our ISBN wrong, or perhaps missing all together. Help us out. Search on B&N and Amazon. If you find one, please let us know. Enter the thirteen (Barnes & Noble) or ten (Amazon) digit number (no dashes) in the boxes above and click on the Submit ISBN button. The numbers shown in the boxes are the numbers we have on file, or zero if we haven't found one.
