9780521644129: A History of Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia is a wealthy and powerful country which exerts influence in the West and across the Islamic world. Yet it remains a closed society. The author traces its history from the age of emirates in the nineteenth century to the present day. Fusing chronology with analysis, personal experience with oral histories, she illuminates the social and cultural life of the Saudis. This rich and rewarding book will be invaluable to students as well as others trying to understand the enigma of Saudi Arabia.

About the Author:

Madawi Al-Rasheed is Senior Lecturer in Social Anthropology at King's College, University of London. Her publications include Politics in an Arabian Oasis (1991) and Iraqi Assyrian Christians in London (1998).

Review:

"An accessible narrative that even those readers already familiar with the outlines of Saudi history can read with profit." Middle East Policy

"The book...is written in a style that quite simply makes for a 'good read.' If I were recommending one book on the history of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia...this would be it." Middle East Journal

"Al-Rasheed's book is concise, timely, and well suited for a broad readership...Skillfully written and insightful." History: Reviews of New Books

"Madawi Al-Rasheed's critical reinterpretation of Saudi Arabian history is not only timely, it is provocative. It is informed by both excellent scholarship and a familiarity with the subject that comes from knowing it from the inside. Both sympathizers with and critics of the country will find their stereotypes of the Saudi reality challenged." F. Gregory Gause, III, University of Vermont

"This is one of the most refreshing, well-researched and clearly-written books to appear on Saudia Arabia in recent times." Hala Fattah, Bulletin of the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies

"Al-Rasheed has written a strong general history of Saudi Arabia that at the same time offers analysis of selected narrower issues and phenomena." - Peter C. Valenti, New York University

Descrizione libro Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2002. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. First Edition. 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.
