The Saudi Royal Family
From Series: Modern World Leaders

The House of Saud had humble beginnings as a family of nomads living in Arabia. But when a new form of the Islamic religion, Wahhabism, influenced the household, they began a quest to unite all of Arabia under this faith. Wars were waged for more than a century until the Al Saud vision finally was realized under King Abdul Aziz, the first king of modern-day Saudi Arabia.

Now the international oil trade has made Saudi Arabia one of the richest countries in the world, and the Saudi royal family finds itself caught in the balance between traditional Islamic faith and the appeal of wealth and Western-style ways. In addition, evidence points to Saudi involvement in the September 11th attacks on the United States. Combining new information on current events with important historical context, The Saudi Royal Family will spark debate on what lies ahead for one of the richest families in the world.

About the Series: Modern World Leaders offers brand-new biographies as well as complete revisions of key titles from the acclaimed Major World Leaders set, focusing on the leaders making headlines today. Distilling personal background, personality, and historical perspective, this series provides excellent platforms for discussion about contemporary events.
