    " An insightful and fluent read on the political, economic, and social realities that conspired to create both modern Saudi Arabia and Osama Bin Laden. Chock full of telling anecdotes on women's invisibility, madrasas, and the complicated succession and face saving of Arabia's many princes, Lacey's book demonstrates how much the West doesn't know or can even understand about life in the MidEast. "

    " Lacey does a great job of giving the reader a detailed, but enjoyable journey through the rise of modern-day Saudi Arabia. From the rise of the Saud family to present day, Lacey uses interviews from those inside the royal family as both family and friends to give an eyewitness account of the ups and downs of running a monarchy. Anyone interested in the political, economical, and religious history of this desert kingdom will find this book worth your while. "

    " A good general introduction to the recent history of not just Saudi Arabia but also of regional and international political machinations. "
