Saudi Arabia is a wealthy and powerful country which wields influence in the West and across the Islamic world. Yet it remains a closed society. Its history in the twentieth century is dominated by the story of state formation. After the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Ibn Sa’ud fought a long campaign to bring together a disparate people from across the Arabian peninsula. In 1932 the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was born. Madawi al-Rasheed traces its extraordinary history from the age of emirates in the nineteenth century, through the 1990 Gulf War, to the present day. She fuses chronology with analysis, personal experience with oral histories, and draws on local and foreign documents to illuminate the social and cultural life of the Saudis. This is a rich and rewarding book which will be invaluable to students, and to all those trying to understand the enigma of Saudi Arabia. Contents Introduction; 1. Society and politics (1744–1818 and 1824–91); 2. The emerging state (1902–1918); 3. Control and loyalty; 4. The politics of dissent (1953–73); 5. From affluence to austerity (1973–90); 6. The Gulf War and its aftermath (1990–2000); 7. Narratives of the state, narratives of the people; Conclusions. Printed Pages: 274 with 8 half-tones, 3 tables, 2 maps, and 3 genealogical tables.
