Behind the Kingdom's Veil: Inside the New Saudi Arabia Under Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (Middle East History and Travel)

Behind the Kingdom's Veil: Inside the New Saudi Arabia Under Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (Middle East History and Travel) - Susanne Koelbl

Behind the Kingdom's Veil: Inside the New Saudi Arabia Under Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (Middle East History and Travel)


#1 New Release in Saudi Arabia History - Witness the Mysterious World of Saudi Arabia

Take a deep dive behind the veils and walls of one of the world's most secretive countries. Learn how religious conservatism and strict laws governing women's freedoms over the past forty years support a single goal-preserving the power of the House of Saud.

Saudi Arabia plays a key role in the world, yet few have first-hand knowledge of who lives, suffers, and wields power there. Now, Susanne Koelbl, award-winning military and foreign correspondent for the German news magazine Der Spiegel, unveils many secrets of this mysterious kingdom. As a journalist, for years Koelbl has traveled throughout the Middle East, and specifically Saudi Arabia, and recently lived in Riyadh during the most dramatic changes since the country's founding. She has long 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 Behind the Kingdom's Veil

  • Have breakfast with Royal Highnesses, meet Osama bin Laden's bomb-making trainer, enter palaces of secret service chiefs and diplomatic legends.
  • Listen to intimate conversations with women ambivalent about their newly offered freedoms.
  • Get to know journalist Jamal Khashoggi, murdered and brutally dismembered in 2018.
  • View an in-depth portrait of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), contrasting liberalization of Saudi society with punitive treatment of dissenters.

Chapter-by-chapter the black box that is Saudi Arabia opens. Become an eyewitness to the inner workings of the new as well as the traditional Saudi Arabia. Learn about the not-so-obvious facts of Saudi Arabia's history, politics and customs. Understand the intricate and often hidden power relations within the kingdom.

If you have read books such as Karen Elliott House's On Saudi Arabia or Robert Lacey's Inside the Kingdom, Behind the Kingdom's Veil should be your next read.

Descrierea produsului


#1 New Release in Saudi Arabia History - Witness the Mysterious World of Saudi Arabia

Take a deep dive behind the veils and walls of one of the world's most secretive countries. Learn how religious conservatism and strict laws governing women's freedoms over the past forty years support a single goal-preserving the power of the House of Saud.

Saudi Arabia plays a key role in the world, yet few have first-hand knowledge of who lives, suffers, and wields power there. Now, Susanne Koelbl, award-winning military and foreign correspondent for the German news magazine Der Spiegel, unveils many secrets of this mysterious kingdom. As a journalist, for years Koelbl has traveled throughout the Middle East, and specifically Saudi Arabia, and recently lived in Riyadh during the most dramatic changes since the country's founding. She has long 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 Behind the Kingdom's Veil

  • Have breakfast with Royal Highnesses, meet Osama bin Laden's bomb-making trainer, enter palaces of secret service chiefs and diplomatic legends.
  • Listen to intimate conversations with women ambivalent about their newly offered freedoms.
  • Get to know journalist Jamal Khashoggi, murdered and brutally dismembered in 2018.
  • View an in-depth portrait of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), contrasting liberalization of Saudi society with punitive treatment of dissenters.

Chapter-by-chapter the black box that is Saudi Arabia opens. Become an eyewitness to the inner workings of the new as well as the traditional Saudi Arabia. Learn about the not-so-obvious facts of Saudi Arabia's history, politics and customs. Understand the intricate and often hidden power relations within the kingdom.

If you have read books such as Karen Elliott House's On Saudi Arabia or Robert Lacey's Inside the Kingdom, Behind the Kingdom's Veil should be your next read.


Witness the Mysterious World of Saudi Arabia

"A fascinating account of the significant changes underway in Saudi Arabia based on years of excellent reporting on the ground in the Kingdom." --Bruce Riedel, director of the Brookings Institution Intelligence Project and author of Kings and Presidents: Saudi Arabia and the United States Since FDR
