Summary "A fascinating account of the significant changes underway in Saudi Arabia based on years of excellent reporting on the ground." -- Bruce Riedel , director of the Brookings Institution Intelligence Project, author of Kings and Presidents: Saudi Arabia and the United States Since FDR Saudi Arabia is one of the world's most secretive countries. Now, Susanne Koelbl, award-winning journalist for the German news magazine Der Spiegel , unveils many secrets of this mysterious kingdom. For years she traveled the Middle East, and recently lived in Riyadh during the most dramatic changes since the country's founding. She has cultivated relationships on every level of Saudi society and is equally at ease with ultra-conservative Wahhabi preachers, oppositionists, and women from all walks of life. In this "piercingly powerful book" (Ahmed Rahid, New York Times -bestselling author of Taliban ), you can have breakfast with Royal Highnesses; meet Osama bin Laden's bomb-making trainer; enter palaces of secret service chiefs; listen to intimate conversations with women about their newly offered freedoms; learn about journalist Jamal Khashoggi; and view an in-depth portrait of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), as you learn about the not-so-obvious facts of the kingdom's history, politics, customs, and hidden power relations."-- Provided by Freading.
