Insight into Saudi Arabia

Jack sent me this link to a review of Saudi Arabia Exposed. The review is worth reading, even if you don't order the book.

In "Saudi Arabia Exposed," John R. Bradley, a British journalist who spent two and a half years as a newspaper editor and reporter in Saudi Arabia, will not make Americans feel any better about the Saudi royals, whom he calls "perhaps the most corrupt family the world has ever known." But he does provide a highly informed, temperate and understanding account of a country that, he maintains, is an enigma to other Arabs, and even to the Saudis themselves.

It also appears an updated version is in the offing.
