'Saudi Arabia Exposed' Most Important And Revealing Book on Kingdom In Years: UPI

'Saudi Arabia Exposed' Most Important And Revealing Book on Kingdom In Years: UPI

John R. Bradley's new book is "the most revealing and important on the real Saudi Arabia to have been published."

Brighton, MA (PRWEB) October 24, 2005

"Saudi Arabia Exposed: Inside a Kingdom in Crisis," a controversial best-selling new book by John R. Bradley, is "the most revealing and important on the real Saudi Arabia to have been published in years," according to the veteran editor of United Press International, Martin Walker.

Despite being the country that sits on one quarter of the world's known oil reserves, and that provided three quarters of the known hijackers for the Sept. 11 attacks organized by Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden, Saudi Arabia remains an enigma to most people in the West.

But "there is no more excuse for ignorance" among Westerners now that they have Mr Bradley's book to turn to, Mr Walker adds in his lengthy UPI review essay on "Saudi Arabia Exposed" just published.

Bill Tammeus, a prominent columnist with Knight Ridder newspapers, last month reported that "Saudi Arabia Exposed" is being hailed by critics as “the best book on the country in decades.”

"Saudi Arabia Exposed" (Palgrave Macmillan, $22.95) has been singled out by The New York Times as “highly insightful,” by Newsweek as “remarkable,” and by the Los Angeles Times Book Review as contributing “significantly to the debate” because of Mr. Bradley's “unique vantage.”

Mr. Bradley, 35, was the only permanently-based, fully accredited Arabic-speaking Western journalist in Saudi Arabia for 2.5 years, from three months before the 9/11 attacks. He traveled extensively through all of the kingdom's regions -- crucially without a government minder.

In a recent issue of The Nation, long-time New Yorker writer Milton Viorst wrote that in "Saudi Arabia Exposed" Mr. Bradley “uses a graceful journalist's pen to write with scholarly authority," and "shows a sensitivity rare for a Westerner, reaching directly to the society's core."
